Abstract

The resolution of two point images is treated in the context of communication theory. By reducing the problem to one described by an equivalent “discrete correlation receiver”, many of the same concepts as developed in earlier papers result as well as further flexibility in the use of hypothesis testing. Also, the error performance is found to rely on parameters not normally discussed in the context of this problem.
