We propose to use a differential operator for representing the influence of phase-only
filters on the defocused modulation transfer function of the clear pupil aperture. We present a phase-only filter
that implements optically Taylor's theorem in phase space. We show numerical
simulations of the modulation transfer functions and the images that can be obtained by using the proposed filter.
