  • Harry L. Snyder
Part of the Optical Physics and Engineering book series (OPEG)


In earlier material we addressed to the reader our misgivings about the parameters chosen by many systems evaluators. The material in this chapter shows that the area between the MTF and the AIM curves, now called “TQF” or “MTFA” by different people, is a metric that is broadly applicable for general scenes but not necessarily a good metric for specific objects.
