Paper Abstract

The Gram determinant technique is applied to signal representation by non-orthogonal bases. A special case of image representation in biological and machine vision using Gabor elementary functions (GEFs) is considered. It is shown that, in general, the Gram determinant is a better approach to computation of the expansion coefficients than the one using bi-orthonormal auxiliary functions. An optimal representation by finite sets of coefficients is attained without a significant computational effort and the resultant reconstruction error converges monotonically with the addition of basis’ components to the reconstruction set. The Gram approach appears to be in a better accord with biological findings, regarding information processing along the visual pathway, compared to the conventional bi-orthogonal scheme.
