Holographic Data Representations


In order to design an effective compression method for a specific type of data, a good understanding of its statistical characteristics is necessary. For digital holographic data, different representations are possible, including intensity-based and complex amplitude-based representations, as we shall see in this chapter. These representations are equivalent in the sense that they all reconstruct the same object. However, different representations may have different statistical characteristics. Therefore, we shall also investigate their suitability for compression.
