# Window Function

Window function an important term in signal processing. It also called apodization or tapering function. It is useful for various operations, like separtion of band frequences etc.
Several different windows are available. Only two are worth using, the Blackman window and the Hamming window.
Blackman window are defined as,

w(n)= a0 – a1*cos((2*pi*n)/(N-1)) + a2*cos((4*pi*n)/(N-1));
where, 0<=n<=N .
and
a0=(1-@)/2, a1=1/2, a2=@/2. in blackman window @ equal to 0.16

Now , in case of Hamming windows coefficient are computed from following equation,

w(n)=0.54 – 0.46cos((2*pi*n)/N); where, 0<=n<=N.

Now for sample 74-point Blackman window’s time and frequency domain representation are given below, Time domain of Blackman window Frequency domain of Blackman window

For the same point Hamming window’s time and frequency domain is Hamming window in Time domain Hamming window in Frequency domain

In this case of blackman window Leakage factor is 0%, sidelobe attenuation -58.1dB and mainlobe width is (-3dB) : 0.0449.
for hamming, Leakage factor is 0.04%, sidelobe attenuation -42.5 dB and mainlobe width is (-3dB) : 0.0351.

After convolution this two windows we will get time and frequency domain like this, Time domain Frequency domain

Leakage factor is 0%, sidelobe attenuation -72.2dB and mainlobe width is (-3dB) : 0.0273.
so this result is more better than before. I called it FSwind 🙂
