We present a direct method based on sampling theorem for computing eigenwavefronts associated with linear, space-invariant imaging systems (including aberrated imaging systems). The application of eigenwavefronts to inverse/ de-convolution problems in imaging is discussed. A noise-dependent measure for information carrying capacity of an imaging system is also proposed.
