We present a novel method to design and optimize window functions based on combinations of linearly independent functions. These combinations can be performed using different strategies, such a sums of sines/cosines, series, or conveniently using a polynomial expansion. To demonstrate the flexibility of this implementation, we propose the Generalized Adaptive Polynomial (GAP) window function, a non-linear polynomial form in which all the current window functions could be considered as special…

New efficient window function, replacement for the hamming window
A new simple window function is presented, which for the same window order (M), has a main-lobe width less than or equal to that of the Hamming window, while offering about 2-4.5-dB smaller peak
A Novel Method for Designing General Window Functions with Flexible Spectral Characteristics
The results show that the window functions generated using the cyclic algorithm (CA) yield better performance overall than the windows of conventional methods, achieving a narrower MW, a lower PSL, and a controllable SLFOR.

Optimization of Weighting Window Functions for SAR Imaging via QCQP Approach
A Quadratically Constrained Quadratic Program (QCQP) approach to optimize the weighting window function with both amplitude and phase is proposed, expecting to offer better imaging performance, especially on PSLR, SNR loss, and mainlobe width.
