This is because the most practical way of building a statistical model proceeds by using features and building a statistical model for them. The point is that the statistical model for features can be much simpler than the corresponding model for the pixels, so it makes sense to first transform the data into a feature space. 5). Independence is here to be taken both in an intuitive sense, and in the technical sense of statistical independence. Most models in Part II of this book are based on this idea.

3, something similar to linear Fourier operators seems to be computed in the early parts of visual processing, which makes computation of Fourier energy rather straightforward. How are the coefficients C and S then computed? The key is orthogonality. The signals cos(ωx) and sin(ωx) are orthogonal, at least approximately. So, the coefficients C and S are simply obtained as the dot-products of the signal with the basis vectors given by the cos and sin functions. In fact, Discrete Fourier Transform can be viewed as defining a basis with such cos and sin functions with many different frequencies, and those frequencies are carefully chosen so that the sinusoidals are exactly orthogonal.

What guarantees that a frequency-based representation exists? The set of mathematical tools used to define and analyze frequency-based representations are part of mathematics called Fourier analysis. In particular, Fourier 38 2 Linear Filters and Frequency Analysis transforms are used to convert data and impulse responses to and from frequencybased representation. There are different types of Fourier transforms for different purposes: continuous/discrete and finite/infinite data. When working with digital images, the most important Fourier transform is the discrete Fourier transform (DFT), which is particularly suited for representation of discrete and finite data in computers.
