Note added in proof. A note in the December, 1961, issue of the J. Opt. Soc. Am. 51, 1441, announced an agreement with the ICO Subcommittee for Image Assessment Problems to change "what is at present known under a variety of names, e.g., sine-wave responise, frequency response, contrast transfer, etc.," to "optical transfer function" when the complex function (i.e., including phase) is intended, as in Part I of this series. The agreement also provides the term "modulation transfer function" for use when phase is not pertinent. These nomenclature recommendations were adopted too late to be incorporated into this paper, but the new nomenclature will be used in future papers.
