%%ANOTHER DESCRIBTION OF GABOR FILTER

%The Gabor filter is basically a Gaussian (with variances sx and sy along x and y-axes respectively)
%modulated by a complex sinusoid (with centre frequencies U and V along x and y-axes respectively)
%described by the following equation
%%
%                            -1     x' ^     y'  ^
%%% G(x,y,theta,f) =  exp ([----{(----) 2+(----) 2}])*cos(2*pi*f*x');
%                             2    sx'       sy'
%%% x' = x*cos(theta)+y*sin(theta);
%%% y' = y*cos(theta)-x*sin(theta);

%% Describtion :

%% I : Input image
%% Sx & Sy : Variances along x and y-axes respectively
%% f : The frequency of the sinusoidal function
%% theta : The orientation of Gabor filter

%% G : The output filter as described above
%% gabout : The output filtered image
