Abstract

By convolving simple binary distributions together new patterns can be created. These patterns have a Fourier transform that can be represented by a product of complex factors. The introduction of a suitable phase filter in the Fourier plane can cause complex conjugation of a set of these factors, which corresponds to switching from one pattern to another on inverse Fourier transformation.
