Paper Abstract

A new geometric viewpoint is presented for optimizing a binary amplitude filter based on finding an ordered set of phasors, the uncoiled phasor set (UPS), from the filter object's discrete Fourier transform that determines a convex polygon. The maximum distance across the polygon determines the value of the correlation peak and the set of frequencies that the optimal filter should pass. Algorithms are presented for finding the UPS and the maximum distance across the polygon that are competititve with optimization approaches that use the binning (Farn and Goodman). The new viewpoint provides a simple way to establish a bound on binning error.
