From the least square method and Vieta's Theorem
The average error:
The Formula has a good approximation to the theoretical value of the polarization entropy
Eigenvalues and logarithm are unnecessary!!!
Running Time by the proposed formula is only 5% of that by the traditional approach

Power Image by OPCE
GP Image by GOPCE
Filtered result by PWF
false alarm rate 1%
(1) OPCE has been developed
(2) GOPCE is effective for ship detection
Scattering from distributed scatterers
Coherent interferences of waves scattered from many randomly distributed scatterers in the resolution cell
These two objectives should
be achieved simultaneously

patch : pixel itself and its
non-local area :other than
pre-test : selecting homogenous
pixels in non-local area by patch
An example of pre-testing homogenous pixels in non-local area by patch
- For each pixel in non-local searching area
Calculate the similarity between 2 patches
