Generalization of the zernike polynomials to a discretely sampled cartesian grid: Application to ophthalmic surfaces.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Orthogonal polynomials on a discretely sampled unit circle are developed and used to represent complex surface shapes found in ophthalmic optics. These polynomials are a generalization of the Zernike polynomials on the continuous unit circle
