Paper Abstract

This paper presents a theoretical limit to the field/resolution ratio for the imaging mode of aperture synthesis interferometers. This limit is a function of both the number of apertures in the interferometric array and the dynamic range of the visibility and phase data. It does not depend on the optical setup of the instrument. This work is based on the theory of information.
