Name

filt_tophatl - top-hat low-pass Fourier filter (truncation of a Fourier series)

Usage

output = filt_tophatl(image, freq, pad)

Input

image
input image (can be either real or Fourier)
freq
stop-band frequency
pad
logical flag specifying whether before filtering the image should be padded with zeroes in real space to twice the size (this helps avoiding aliasing artifacts). (Default pad = False).

Output

output
filtered image. Output image is real when input image is real or Fourier when input image is Fourier

Method

Fourier transform of the input image is set to zero for spatial frequencies larger than freq.
