Bartlett window

## Syntax

`w = bartlett(L)`

## Description

`w = bartlett(L)` returns an `L`-point Bartlett window in the column vector `w`, where `L` must be a positive integer. The coefficients of a Bartlett window are computed as follows:

$w\left(n\right)=\left\{\begin{array}{ll}\frac{2n}{N},\hfill & 0\le n\le \frac{N}{2}\hfill \\ 2-\frac{2n}{N},\hfill & \frac{N}{2}\le n\le N\hfill \end{array}$

The window length $L=N+1$.

The Bartlett window is very similar to a triangular window as returned by the `triang` function. The Bartlett window always has zeros at the first and last samples, however, while the triangular window is nonzero at those points. For `L` odd, the center `L - 2` points of` bartlett(L)` are equivalent to `triang(L-2)`.

 Note   If you specify a one-point window (set `L = 1`), the value `1` is returned.

### Bartlett Window

Create a 64-point Bartlett window. Display the result using `wvtool`.

```L = 64; bw = bartlett(L); wvtool(bw) ```
