SignalProcessing

 KaiserWindow
 multiply an array of samples by a Kaiser windowing function

 Calling Sequence KaiserWindow(A, alpha)

Parameters

 A - Array of real or complex numeric values; the signal alpha - numeric parameter for Kaiser windowing function

Options

 • container : Array, predefined Array for holding results
 • inplace : truefalse, specifies that output should overwrite input

Description

 • The KaiserWindow(A, alpha) command multiplies the Array A by the Kaiser windowing function with parameter alpha and returns the result in a Array having the same length. The length of A must be at least $1$.
 • The Kaiser windowing function $w$ with parameter $\mathrm{\alpha }$ is defined as follows for a sample with $N$ points.

$w\left(k\right)=\frac{{I}_{0}\left(\mathrm{\alpha }\sqrt{{\left(\frac{N}{2}-\frac{1}{2}\right)}^{2}-{\left(k-\frac{N}{2}+\frac{1}{2}\right)}^{2}}\right)}{{I}_{0}\left(\frac{\mathrm{\alpha }\left(N-1\right)}{2}\right)}$

where ${I}_{0}$ is a modified Bessel function of the first kind (see BesselI).

 • For an Array with complex values, the real and imaginary parts are multiplied by the same windowing function.
 • Before the code performing the computation runs, A is converted to datatype float[8] or complex[8] if it does not have one of those datatypes already. For this reason, it is most efficient if A has one of these datatypes beforehand. This does not apply if inplace is true.
 • If the container=C option is provided, then the results are put into C and C is returned. With this option, no additional memory is allocated to store the result. The container must be an Array of the same size and datatype as A.
 • If the inplace or inplace=true option is provided, then A is overwritten with the results. In this case, the container option is ignored.

Thread Safety

 • The SignalProcessing[KaiserWindow] command is thread-safe as of Maple 17.
 • For more information on thread safety, see index/threadsafe.
