In geometry, an inversion is a transformation that maps all circles into circles, where by a circle one may also mean a line (a circle with infinite radius).
Inversion of an object , denoted I(A), is the operation that corresponds to the geometrical inversion of through the origin. In one dimension, { I(A) } = {A0 , AN-1 , ... , A2 , A1 } . In general, the array element at rx , ry , ... is exchanged with the array element at Nx - rx , Ny - ry , ... . Inversion has the effect of complex conjugating the Fourier transform of the object: F( I(A) ) = F(A)*.
