Abstract: This work presents and evaluates three classes of definite integrals which can arise in the signal processing analysis of coherent imaging systems. All integrals yield to the method of contour integration in the complex plane. Such a treatment requires physically reasonable constraints on the beam divergence, apodizing function of the phased array. The physical foundation of the three integral classes is described in the text.
