compute the finite linear convolution of two arrays of samples
Arrays of real or complex numeric sample values
container : Array, predefined Array for holding result
algorithm : symbol, algorithm to use for computation
The Convolution(A, B) command computes the convolution of the Arrays A and B of length M and N respectively, storing the result in a Array C of length M+N−1 and having datatype float or complex, which is then returned.
The convolution is defined by the formula
for each k from 1 to M+N−1, with Aj=0 for M<j and Bj=0 for N<j.
Before the code performing the computation runs, A and B are converted to datatype float (if the values are all real-valued) or complex (if all the values are complex-valued, but not all real-valued) if they do not have that datatype already. For this reason, it is most efficient if A and B have one of these datatypes beforehand.
If either A or B is an rtable that is not a 1-D Array, it is accepted by the command and converted to an Array. Should this not be possible, an error will be thrown.
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 size M+N−1 having datatype float or complex.
The algorithm=name option can be used to specify the algorithm used for computing the convolution. Supported algorithms:
auto - automatically choose the fastest algorithm based on input.
direct - use direct convolution formula for computation. This is the default.
fft - use an algorithm based on the Fast Fourier Transform (FFT). This is a much faster algorithm than the direct formula for large samples, but numerical roundoff can cause significant numerical artifacts, especially when the result has a large dynamic range.
