Paper Abstract

Discrete Fourier transforms (DFTs) are typically used to compute correlations and implementing correlation filters (CFs). Because of the properties of DFTs, resulting correlations are actually circular (also known as periodic) correlations. Using current CF design techniques, it is not possible to design a CF that produces exactly the desired linear correlation output. There are several techniques that may be used to reduce the effects of circular correlation. In this paper, we describe these techniques and provide some experimental results that compare these techniques.
