  7. Actually we should write gt = ½ [1 +cos(2πƒ0x1)] rect(x1/C) rect(y1/D). We are neglecting the constant additive term because it does not add to the current development. The size of the transparency, C×D, is also assumed to be much larger than the lens aperture, allowing us to assume an infinite transparency.
