Abstract

This paper gives the definition and examples of an arbitrary order differentiation based on some properties of the Fourier transform. To physically implement the generalized differentiation a coherent processing system with binary synthetic filter was used. The experimental part of the paper shows models of the 1-D and 2-D binary filters and results of the filtering process.
