Abstract : The simplest conceptual realization of a two-dimensional lensless incoherent optical correlator is introduced. In this naive model, the correlation function is located at infinity and permits only serial recording. A more sophisticated model of a lensless correlator is then developed which permits simultaneous recording of the correlation function located at finite distance. The theory is valid within the limitations of ray theory. (Author)
