Abstract

An analysis of the error diffusion procedure is presented that is based on the terminology of filter theory. It is demonstrated that the error diffusion procedure is a powerful means to avoid signal error caused by a nonlinear system. An appropriate filter design method is described. The theoretical results are applied to treat picture binarization as well as quantization and coding in diffractive optics–digital holography.
