Command: arraylib::GaborPatch

Petkov N and Kruizinga P: Biol. Cybern. 76 83-96 (1997)

nrows ncols GaborPatch -> [[] .. []]

Options which determine the argument range of the Gabor patch.

x_min doubletype - smallest x coordinate value [-2Pi]
x_max doubletype - largest x coordinate value. [ 2Pi]
y_min doubletype - smallest y coordinate value. [-2Pi]
y_max doubletype - largest y coordinate value. [ 2Pi]

Options which determine the Gabor function:

lambda doubletype - Wavelength of the Gabor in RAD. [ 2Pi]
phase doubletype - Phase of the Gabor in RAD. [ 0.0]
orientation doubletype - Rotation of the Gabor in RAD [ 0.0]
sigma doubletype - Width of the Gaussian envelope. [ Pi]
gamma doubletype - Spatial aspect ratio. [ 1.0]

The options correspond to the status dictionary entries of the
gabor_device. Thus it is possible to use the option dictionary
of the GaborPatch to set the properties of a gabor device.


nrows: number of rows of the result matrix.
ncols: number of columns of the result matrix.

Marc-Oliver Gewaltig

This function returns a matrix of nrows by ncols with the amplitudes
of a Gabor function computed over the range of [x_min x_max] by [y_min y_max].
These and other parameters can be set by changing the function's options.

An orientation of 0 RAD results in a vertically oriented Gabor.
An orientation of Pi/2 results in an horizontally oriented Gabor.
Angles are measured counter clockwise from the positive x-axis.

The implementation follows the description given by
N. Petkov and R. Kruizinga Biol.Cybern. 76 83-97 (1997).

Note that GaborPatch automatically performs a coordinate transformation
from the mathematical x-y plane to the matrix row-column system.
