The principle of representing continuous complex-valued functions by their decomposition into three positive-valued ones is proposed for the generation of complex reference functions for a joint transform correlator. Three basic approaches involving coherent and incoherent superposition of the component functions are analyzed. The potentials and limitations of the techniques are discussed.
