Abstract

Spatial filters based on the properties of convex functions can be generated directly on a hybrid electro-optical system. As an example, simulated annealing was used to design highly selective spatial filters. Laboratory experiments demonstrated efficient pattern recognition and class discrimination. Several procedures for designing synthetic discriminant functions discussed in the literature are shown to be special cases of the present procedure.
