Triangular window


w = triang(L)


w = triang(L) returns an L-point triangular window in the column vector, w.

See Definitions for the equations that define the triangular window. The triangular window is very similar to a Bartlett window. The Bartlett window always ends with zeros at samples 1 and L, while the triangular window is nonzero at those points. For L odd, the center L-2 points of triang(L-2) are equivalent to bartlett(L).

Triangular Window

Create a 200-point triangular window. Display the result using wvtool.

L = 200;
w = triang(L);


The coefficients of a triangular window are the following.

For L odd:

For L even:
