Paper Abstract

It is the purpose of this report to present the case for the use of a coherent transfer function in optics. At present both a coherent and a non-coherent trans-fer function are defined by various authors. Additionally,transfer functions for partially coherent light can be defined. It is proposed in this paper that a transfer function operating on amplitude be used.
