We observe that the local energy is the pre-envelope for analytic function. The maxima and phase of this function can be used to compute and classify visual features such as motion and stereo disparity, texture, etc. We examine the construction of new filters for computing Local Energy, and compare these filters with the Gabor filters and the three-point-filter of Venkatesh and Owens.
