"Windowing'' is a technique used to design finite-impulse-response digital filters, that involves "windows" - finite-duration discrete-time signals with certain special properties. In digital signal processing most windows have been developed for spectral analysis, not for use in the design of filters The goals of this thesis are (1) to modify the windowing technique resulting in more efficient filter designs, (2) to develop performance metrics for windows specifically directed at their use in filter design, (3) to catalog existing windows, (4) to generate new windows specifically taking into consideration their ultimate use in the filter design process, and (5) to evaluate the existing and new windows based on the proposed performance metrics. The performance metrics are used as guidelines for the design of finite-impulse-response digital filters using the windowing technique.
