Abstract

The process of image formation by reconstructed wave fronts, brought to notice and placed upon a broad theoretical foundation through the writings of D. Gabor, is here discussed from a less abstract standpoint in an attempt to establish a satisfying conceptual explanation of the phenomena. The imperfections which the photographically recorded images ordinarily exhibit are accounted for and classified, and means for their removal are described. Sample reconstructions are presented.
