Paper Abstract

Many phase retrieval problems cannot be readily solved with the Gerchberg-Saxton algorithm. In some cases no solution may exist. In all cases where the implied phase error is large, the algorithm partially converges to a phase afflicted with branch points and then seems unable to eliminate them, although the true phase cannot have branch points.
