### 5.23.11 Cosine window function : cosine_window

cosine_window takes as arguments a real vector v of length n and optionally a positive real number α (by default α=1 ) and/or an interval n_{1} .. n_{2} (with default values n_{1}=0 and n_{2}=n−1 ), and returns the elementwise product of the vector [v_{n1},…,v_{n2}] and the vector w of length N=n_{2}−n_{1}+1 defined by

w_{k}=sin^{α} | ⎛
⎜
⎜
⎝ | | ⎞

⎠ |

for k=0,1,…,N−1 . For example, input :

L:=cosine_window(randvector(1000,0..1),1.5):;

followed by scatterplot(L).
