As is known, however, truncated Fourier series provide poor representations for nonperiodic functions, an inaccuracy which is only compounded by differentiation.
The EME measure is suitable for images with attributes like noncomplex segments, uniform background in segments, small targets in segments, nonperiodic pattern in segments, and little to no randomness in segments.
