Areal autocorrelation and spectral analysis of surface topography

  • W. P. Dong


In addition to the statistical and geometric analysis methods, areal autocorrelation functions and spectral analysis techniques are also very important tools for extracting and representing certain features of 3-D surface topography. Since a practically acquired 3-D surface can always be represented by a discrete data matrix, it can be processed with advanced digital signal processing techniques. This can be very helpful for exploring the features that cannot readily be studied by other methods.
