SignalProcessing

 CauchyWindow
 multiply an array of samples by a Cauchy windowing function

 Calling Sequence CauchyWindow( A, alpha )

Parameters

 A - Array of real or complex numeric values; the signal alpha - real numeric constant

Options

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

Description

 • The CauchyWindow( A, alpha ) command multiplies the Array A by the Cauchy windowing function, with parameter $\mathrm{\alpha }$, and returns the result in an Array having the same length.
 • The Cauchy windowing function $w\left(k\right)$ with parameter $\mathrm{\alpha }$ is defined as follows for a sample with $N$ points.

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

 • 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[CauchyWindow] command is thread-safe as of Maple 18.
 • For more information on thread safety, see index/threadsafe.
