Paper Abstract

It was just 20 years ago that A. B. VanderLugt, "Bud" to his friends and associates, had the flash of insight to realize that holography could be applied to the problem of recording the complex conjugate of a function, and thereby render possible the implementation of the correlation of two arbitrary functions optically. It is with his achievement in mind that we dedicate this special issue of Optical Engineering to the subject of Optical Pattern Recognition.
