Name

acfnpl - calculate the normalized autocorrelation function of an image using padding with zeroes, multiplication in Fourier space, and normalization of the result by the actual number of pixels used for calculating the ccf coefficients.

Usage

output = acfnpl(image, center=True)

Input

image
input image (real)
center
if set to True (default), the origin of the result is at the center; if set to False, the origin is at (0,0), the option is much faster, but the result is difficult to use

Output

output
autocorrelation function of the input image. Real. The origin of the autocorrelation function (term ccf(0,0,0)) is located at (int[n/2], int[n/2], int[n/2]) in 3D, (int[n/2], int[n/2]) in 2D, and at int[n/2] in 1D.
