  // The \doxygen{otb}{HarrisImageFilter} needs some parameters to
  // operate. The derivative computation is performed by a
  // convolution with the derivative of a Gaussian kernel of
  // variance $\sigma_D$ (derivation scale) and
  // the smoothing of the image is performed by convolving with a
  // Gaussian kernel of variance $\sigma_I$ (integration
  // scale). This allows the computation of the following matrix:
  // \begin{equation}
  // \mu(\mathbf{x},\sigma_I,\sigma_D) = \sigma_D^2 g(\sigma_I)\star
  // \left[\begin{array}{cc} L_x^2(\mathbf{x},\sigma_D) &
  // L_xL_y(\mathbf{x},\sigma_D)\\ L_xL_y(\mathbf{x},\sigma_D)&
  // L_y^2(\mathbf{x},\sigma_D) \end{array}\right]
