Klein Bottle Shown here is a glass "Klein Bottle" made in the 70s by the late Mitsugi Ohno (Mr. Ohno died on Oct. 22, 1999 from cancer), an expert glass blower at Kansas State University. A Klein Bottle is a 3D Möbius Strip. See the article "Glass Klein Bottles" in the March 1998 Scientific American "Mathematical Recreations" section (pp. 100-101) for more information. 

Mitsugi Ohno is truly a master artist.

Cross Correlation sci.image.processing post by Chris Russ (29 Sept 99):  "Cross correlation in the Fourier domain is really the same as convolution with a 180 degree rotated pattern in the spatial domain.  If you're looking for speed and that is the reason you're interested in an FFT-based implementation of cross-correlation, you may want to consider this equivalence."

"A small spatial convolution (say under 13x13) is less numerically intensive (and usually faster) than two forward FT's a complex multiplication with the phase reversed and an inverse FT."

FFT Demystified 
FFTW FFTW is a C subroutine library for computing the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) in one or more dimensions, of both real and complex data, and of arbitrary input size. We believe that FFTW, which is free software, should become the FFT library of choice for most applications.  Developed at MIT.   [Winner of 1999 Wilkinson Prize for Numerical Software -- awarded by Argonne Nat'l Lab (U.S.),   National Physical Laboratory (UK), Numerical Algorithms Group (UK)]

HpW Works The HpW Works is spectrum Analyzer for MS Windows on the Intel platform. The Analyzer uses the Fast Fourier Transformation (FFT) technique to transform the sampled data to the frequency domain. It is a way of representing a very complicated sampled data pattern in terms of its linear projection onto sinusoids of various frequency. The FFT spectrum is a power frequency graph which shows quantitatively how much of the original pattern is composed by each of the frequencies.
