Paper Abstract

The principles of image formation using a dilute, multiple- telescope interferometer will be considered. In particular, the requirements for an instrument capable of providing a unique reconstruction of object Fourier phases and instrumental phase errors from a single 'snapshot' of data will be examined. The roles of redundancy in the telescope array, the imposition of the positivity requirement in data inversion, the quality of the instrument point spread function and the stability of the data inversion will be taken into account.
