Paper Abstract

A design method for synthetic discriminant functions is described that optimizes filter performance by an appropriate weighting of the phase and of amplitude components of the training set images. The optimization criteria are the quality of discrimination of in-class and rejection of out-of-class images, filter efficiency and robustness in the presence of noise. The comparison is with the POF/fSDF. A practical demonstration is found in the application of a so optimized filter in a hybrid correlator.
