Abstract

We highlight the need for – and describe initial strategies to find – new digital-optical basis functions and performance merit functions to serve as a foundation for designing, analyzing, characterizing, testing, and comparing a range of computational imaging systems. Such functions will provide a firm theoretical foundation for computational sensing and imaging and enhanced design software, thereby broadly speeding the development of computational imaging systems.
