Abstract

We examine simplified correlation through the use of binary data. For the sake of economy we represent the real input u(x) by one amplitude bit per pixel and the correlation filter by one phase bit per Fourier pixel. With such a crude representation of input and reference, it is possible indeed to obtain fairly good correlation results.
