Displays the time waveform for the Gaussian pulse function.

%This m-file displays the time waveform for the Gaussian pulse function and the 
%first and second derivatives of the Gaussian pulse function for a 0.5
%nanosecond pulse width. Other values of pulse widths may be used by
%changing fs,t,t1. The program uses the actual first and second derivative
%equations for the Gaussian pulse waveforms. The first derivative is
%considered to be the monocycle or monopulse as discussed in most papers.
%The second derivative is the waveform generated from a dipole antenna used in a UWB
%system in the far field and should be the shape of the templet(unmodulated) used for
%correlation at the UWB receiver.[2] 
%The transfer function for a dipole is approx.
%(1/R)*(sqrt(nzero/Rrad))*(sqrt(3/8*pi))*s^2*L*C where s=jW.[1]
%The frequency domain spectrums can be shown by doing FFT routines on the
%waveforms. This m file does not require any toolboxes to run. There should
%be enough infomation here to design and fully simulate a complete modulated UWB
%system including antennas at any frequency band such as (<960MHz and
%3.1~10.6GHz).A good demo of a see thru the wall UWB system operating below
%960MHz is shown at
