Abstract : Two classes of optimal spectral windows are derived. These windows are compared with empirical windows used, e.g. Bartlett, Hanning, Parzen, and are found to be generally superior to them on a mean-square-error basis. Some of the considerations of bandwidth and resolution of spectral windows are discussed and clarified. (Author)
