An algorithm for synthetic aperture processing derived using approximation theory is presented. Improvements offered by this approximation theoretic algorithm and the analytic relationships between the algorithm and other algorithms are described. The approximation theoretic approach is shown to provide a unified formalism for comparing and evaluating existing and proposed algorithms as well as a method for generalizing and improving them.
