A set of local interaction field are suggested to replace the δ error term in usual regularization approaches. These local fields bring some computational and conceptual benefits. A set of local oriented position pinning fields and orientation tuning fields are suggested to use local position and orientation correlations directly in regularization. Some simple experiments show that these generalizations are useful in many cases.
