Common functions for Spherical Harmonic decomposition

These Matlab libraries were created during my PhD research at the Australian National University in Canberra, Australia. If you would like to make reference to the libraries, you can cite any of my following works:

File Description:

  • SHTools.m: This is the base class for all Spherical Harmonics-related functions

  • exmaples_SHTools.m: Demonstrates some of the usages including:

    • Get real and complex SH under various circumstances
    • Get analytical alphas and betas under various circumstances
    • Simulate sound pressure under various circumstances
    • Perform Spherical Harmonic decomposition
    • Bessel and Hankel functions
    • Other miscellaneous useful functions
    • Get Eigenmic coordinates
  • HOAGrid.m & HOAGridData.mat: Design spherical microphone array with weights.

  • STFTClass: Performs efficient STFT and inverse STFT for audio processing.

  • examples_STFTClass.m: Demonstrates usage of STFTClass
