Paper Abstract

The only condition for separation of the optical transfer function treated in the literature is the long-exposure (ensemble average) condition. Other conditions are considered here. One particular condition based upon the Taylor "frozen atmosphere" hypothesis may be widely applicable for intermediate exposure times. A computer simulation for testing separation in this case is proposed.
