## Detailed Description

### template<typename TPixel, unsigned int VDimension = 2, typename TAllocator = NeighborhoodAllocator< TPixel >> class itk::GaussianDerivativeOperator< TPixel, VDimension, TAllocator >

A NeighborhoodOperator whose coefficients are a one dimensional, discrete derivative Gaussian kernel.

GaussianDerivativeOperator can be used to calculate Gaussian derivatives by taking its inner product with to a Neighborhood (NeighborhooIterator) that is swept across an image region. It is a directional operator. N successive applications oriented along each dimensional direction will calculate separable, efficient, N-D Gaussian derivatives of an image region.

GaussianDerivativeOperator takes three parameters:

(1) The floating-point variance of the desired Gaussian function.

(2) The order of the derivative to be calculated (zero order means it performs only smoothing as a standard itk::GaussianOperator)

(3) The "maximum error" allowed in the discrete Gaussian function. "Maximum errror" is defined as the difference between the area under the discrete Gaussian curve and the area under the continuous Gaussian. Maximum error affects the Gaussian operator size. Care should be taken not to make this value too small relative to the variance lest the operator size become unreasonably large.

References: The Gaussian kernel contained in this operator was described by Tony Lindeberg (Discrete Scale-Space Theory and the Scale-Space Primal Sketch. Dissertation. Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. May 1991.).
