Description In Proceedings of the 10th Scandinavian Conference on Image Analysis
In this article we introduce the Clifford Fourier transform (CFT) which is based on the n--dimensional Fourier transform but offers a representation of an n--dimensional signal with values in a 2 n --dimensional Clifford algebra. For n = 2 we get the special case of the quaternionic Fourier transform (QFT). The QFT provides information about the symmetry of a real signal in a more explicit way then the Fourier transform does. The QFT is related to the Fourier transform and to the Hartley transform. Based on the QFT we introduce a two--dimensional phase concept. The shift theorem is examined in terms of the QFT and experimental results concerning the estimation of the two-dimensional phase--difference of two images are presented.
