Output Arguments

Bohman window, returned as a column vector.


A Bohman window is the convolution of two half-duration cosine lobes. In the time domain, it is the product of a triangular window and a single cycle of a cosine with a term added to set the first derivative to zero at the boundary. Bohman windows fall off as 1/w4.The equation for computing the coefficients of a Bohman window is


where x is a length-L vector of linearly spaced values generated using linspace. The first and last elements of the Bohman window are forced to be identically zero.
