Coded mask imaging of extended sources with Gaussian random fields
In discretising, the amplitudes Ψ( k) are set such that their quadratic sum Pk∈[| k|,| k+∆ k|] |Ψ( k)|2 matches σ2 k with the only exception Ψ( k = 0), which is set to zero in order to ensure a vanishing expectation value of the realisation ψ( x).

Coded mask imaging of extended sources with Gaussian random fields
In general, the realisation ψ( x) will not ful fill the above mentioned symmetry condition.
Coded mask imaging of extended sources with Gaussian random fields
It should be noted that none of the above scalings strictly conserves Gaussianity, because each particular realisation is scaled by its maximal amplitude and consequently, high amplitudes do not appear any more in an ensemble of realisations.
Coded mask imaging of extended sources with Gaussian random fields
Both realisations have been derived with the same random seed, i.e. the relative phases are identical and one immediately recognises similar structures in ψG ( x) and ψL ( x).
