The Ambiguity Function was originally used to describe the mathematics of radar signal processing. The Ambiguity Function can also be used as a mathematical tool to describe computational imaging systems. This tool allows a clear understanding and physical insight into the fundamental limits of imaging systems. Transformations of the Ambiguity Function allow insight into numerous important imaging quantities.
