The goal of imaging with interferometers is to obtain an estimate of the spectral flux Iλ(ā) of the source of interest, as a function of two-dimensional angular coordinates \(\bar \alpha \) on the celestial sphere, with an angular resolution that corresponds to the maximum baseline in the array, and which is consistent with the observations.
