A novel systematic approach to the design of directivity patterns of higher order differential microphones is proposed. The directivity patterns are obtained by optimizing a cost function which is a convex combination of a front-back energy ratio and uniformity within a frontal sector of interest. Most of the standard directivity patterns - omnidirectional, cardioid, subcardioid, hypercardioid, supercardioid - are particular solutions of this optimization problem with specific values of two… Expand

TLDR
