SignalProcessing

 HammingWindow
 multiply an array of samples by a Hamming windowing function

 Calling Sequence HammingWindow(A)

Parameters

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

Options

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

Description

 • The HammingWindow(A) command multiplies the Array A by a Hamming windowing function and returns the result in an Array having the same length. The length of A must be at least $3$.
 • The Hamming windowing function $w$ is defined as follows for a sample with $N$ points.

$w\left(k\right)=0.54-0.46\mathrm{cos}\left(\frac{2\mathrm{\pi }k}{N-1}\right)$

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

Compatibility

 • The SignalProcessing[HammingWindow] command was introduced in Maple 17.
