w = bohmanwin(L)


w = bohmanwin(L) returns an L-point Bohman window in column vector w. A Bohman window is the convolution of two half-duration cosine lobes. In the time domain, it is the product of a triangular window and a single cycle of a cosine with a term added to set the first derivative to zero at the boundary. Bohman windows fall off as 1/w4.

Compute a 64-point Bohman window. Display the result using wvtool.

L = 64;
bw = bohmanwin(L);


The equation for computing the coefficients of a Bohman window is


where x is a length-L vector of linearly spaced values generated using linspace. The first and last elements of the Bohman window are forced to be identically zero.
