# dst, idst

(Not recommended) Discrete sine transform

`dst` and `idst` are not recommended.

## Syntax

```y = dst(x) y = dst(x,n) x = idst(y) x = idst(y,n) ```

## Description

The `dst` function implements the following equation:

`$y\left(k\right)=\sum _{n=1}^{N}x\left(n\right)\mathrm{sin}\left(\pi \frac{kn}{N+1}\right),\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}k=1,...,N$`

`y = dst(x)` computes the discrete sine transform of the columns of `x`. For best performance speed, the number of rows in `x` should be 2m – 1, for some integer m.

`y = dst(x,n)` pads or truncates the vector `x` to length `n` before transforming.

If `x` is a matrix, the `dst` operation is applied to each column.

The `idst` function implements the following equation:

`x = idst(y)` calculates the inverse discrete sine transform of the columns of `y`. For best performance speed, the number of rows in `y` should be 2m – 1, for some integer m.

`x = idst(y,n)` pads or truncates the vector `y` to length `n` before transforming.

If `y` is a matrix, the `idst` operation is applied to each column.
