Abstract

Symbolic representations for the functional transforms are introduced as an aid in developing and optimizing the architecture of a photonic processor. As an example of the methodology that follows from the introduction of these symbols, a structural model of a processor whose design function is real-time extraction of the spatial information content from image data is discussed.
