Multiplies a series with a Taylor Window.
TAYLORWIN(series, ampflag, nbar, attn)
series 
 
A series or array. 

ampflag 
 
Optional. An integer, the amplitude correction flag:


nbar 
 
Optional. An integer, the number of approximate constant level sidelobes adjacent to the mainlobe. Defaults to 4. 

attn 
 
Optional. A real, the sidelobe attenuation from the mainlobe in dB. Defaults to 
TAYLORWIN(N, ampflag, nbar, attn)
N 
 
An integer, the window length. 

ampflag 
 
Optional. An integer, the amplitude correction flag:


nbar 
 
Optional. An integer, the number of approximate constant level sidelobes adjacent to the mainlobe. Defaults to 4. 

attn 
 
Optional. A real, the sidelobe attenuation from the mainlobe in dB. Defaults to 
A series.
W1: gsin(1000, 0.001, 45)
W2: taylorwin(w1)
W1 contains a 1000 point sinewave with a frequency of 45 Hz. W2 multiplies the sinewave with a Taylor window.
W1: gsin(1000, 0.001, 45)
W2: taylorwin(w1, 5, 35)
Same as the first example except the number of approximately constant sidelobes is 5 and the sidelobe attenuation is
W1: taylorwin(100, 5, 35)
Creates a 100 point Taylor window where the number of approximately constant level sidelobes is 5 and the sidelobe attenuation is
Taylor windows are similar to
Because the Taylor distribution avoids edge discontinuities, the window sidelobes decrease monotonically.
The Taylor window coefficients are not normalized.
Taylor windows are typically used in radar applications, such as weighting synthetic aperture radar images, circular array antennas and antenna design.
nbar is the number of approximately equal sidelobes adjacent to the mainlobe and should satisfy:
nbar ≥ 2 A^{2} + 0.5
where:
A = acosh(10^{ attn/20 }) / π
otherwise the sidelobe level specified is not guaranteed.
The attn parameter specifies the maximum sidelobe level in dB relative to the mainlobe level.
If the input is an integer with a value of N, an N point Taylor window is returned.
See GTAYLORWIN to also create an N point Taylor window.
