Abstract

Phase retrieval implies extraction of the phase of a complex signal f from its modulus |f|. We give examples where an additional constraint is imposed: knowledge of the modulus of F, the Fourier transform of f. The retrieval is accomplished by computer processing of samples of |f| and |F|. The problems of noisy data and nonuniqueness are addressed.
