**PURPOSE**- Computes the normalized auto-correlation function of image/volume by using the Fourier transform relationship. Example.

**USAGE**- .OPERATION: AC N

- .INPUT FILE: PIC001

[Enter the name of the picture to be auto-correlated.].OUTPUT FILE: ACF001

[Enter name of the file which will contain the auto-correlation coefficients.]

**NOTES**

- On completion of this operation, the output file will contain
the auto-correlation function. The origin is at:
(NX/2 + 1, NY/2 + 1, NZ/2 + 1).
- The input data must be real.
- If the data cannot fit into the memory, use the 'FT' and 'SQ'
commands to calculate the ACF:

**WARNING**: The orgin of the ACF calculated in this way is in (1,1,1).
