A relationship is derived between the irradiance moments of an object’s and the irradiance moments of the object’s image. Accurate knowledge of the system’s point-spread-function irradiance moments permits inversion of this relationship. It is shown that the inversion is well conditioned, and Monte-Carlo simulation results of a two-point object that demonstrate super resolution are presented.
