Question: Hi, I was wondering the procedure of convert Visibility to Dirty image is reversible in reality? For example, I only have the Visibility (a) at first, then I convert it into Dirty image. After that, I convert the Dirty image to Visibility (b). Is a and b will be equal in reality? — Shui
Answer: In the sense that you can recover the same (u,v) distribution from an image which has been fourier transformed, I think that the answer to your question is yes.
