Both analytical and experimental investigations of 1-D and 2-D coherent and incoherent space-variant optical processors have been conducted. The investigations included 1 investigation of an improved measure of the degree of invariance of a linear system and its applications to piecewise isoplanatic space-variant systems 2 a process for generalized linear filtering of 1-D signals 3 investigation of a very fast architecture for performing optical multiplication of binary numbers and 4 techniques for both linear and nonlinear space-variant processing based on the bilinear transform.
