Abstract

Several approaches to the design of reduced-resolution synthetic discriminant functions (SDF's) using multiresolution wavelet analysis (MWA) techniques are investigated. In the first approach, reduced-resolution approximations of a full-resolution SDF are obtained by MWA. In the second approach, reduced-resolution approximations of the training-image Fourier transforms are obtained by MWA, and a reduced-resolution SDF is obtained directly by training on these. For both approaches, reduced-resolution MICE-SDF filters were designed with MWA and conventional down-sampling techniques. Simulations showed that filters designed by the second approach with MWA techniques permitted reductions in the number of filter pixels from 128 × 128 to 32 × 32, while still satisfying the design constraints. In comparison, the performances of 32 × 32 filters designed by conventional down-sampling techniques were significantly degraded.
