Moiré effects that occur in the superposition of aperiodic layers such as random dot screens are known as Glass patterns. Unlike classical moiré effects between periodic layers, which are periodically repeated throughout the superposition, a Glass pattern is concentrated around a certain point in the superposition, and farther away from this point it fades out and disappears. I show that Glass patterns between aperiodic layers can be analyzed by using an extension of the Fourier-based theory… Expand

It is shown how the approach also allows us to synthesize correlated random screens that give in their superposition dot trajectories having any desired geometric shapes, and it is explained why suchdot trajectories are visible only in superpositions of aperiodic screens but not in superPOSitions of periodic screens.
