Abstract
Image processing by linear systems has some fascinating aspects due to the theorems of the Fourier transform (FT). Those, whose FT operator is a piece of glass are quite familiar to them, thinking in object space images and FT space images by reason of visual experience. But also in digital image processing the study of FT images is advantageous, e.g. when designing linear filters. The realization of an apodized Laplacian operator is shown, using an image of G-banded chromosomes as test objects. The quality of the filters is tested by the application of a contour-algorithm on-to the filtered images.
