### Abstract

Owing to the nonlinear nature of the problem, the transform orders in fractional Fourier-domain filtering configurations have usually not been optimized but chosen uniformly. We discuss the optimization of these orders for multi-channel-filtering configurations by first finding the optimal filter coefficients for a larger number of uniformly chosen orders, and then maintaining the most important ones. The method is illustrated with the problem of synthesizing desired mutual-intensity distributions. The method we propose allows those fractional Fourier domains, which add little benefit to the filtering process but increase the overall cost, to be pruned, so that comparable performance can be attained with less cost, or higher performance can be obtained with the same cost. The method we propose is more likely to be useful when confronted with low-cost rather than high-performance applications, because larger improvements are obtained when the use of a smaller number of filters is desired.
