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).
