Filters that have optimal trade-offs among the criteria of noise robustness, sharpness of the correlation peak, and Horner efficiency are presented, and an explicit mathematical expression is provided. Owing to their optimality, these filters provide a figure of merit and then permit a rigorous characterization of filter performances for optical pattern recognition.
