Paper Abstract

The scale invariance of the Mellin transform and its optical synthesis in real-time are discussed. An initial off-line demonstration of an optical Mellin transform is presented. A scale invariant correlation and a combined Fourier-Mellin transform that is both scale and shift invariant are discussed. Applications of these transforms in optical data processing and optical pattern recognition are emphasized.
