# On the use of windows for harmonic analysis with the discrete Fourier transform

@article{Harris1978OnTU, title={On the use of windows for harmonic analysis with the discrete Fourier transform}, author={F.J. Harris}, journal={Proceedings of the IEEE}, year={1978}, volume={66}, pages={51-83} }

This paper makes available a concise review of data windows and their affect on the detection of harmonic signals in the presence of broad-band noise, and in the presence of nearby strong harmonic interference. We also call attention to a number of common errors in the application of windows when used with the fast Fourier transform. This paper includes a comprehensive catalog of data windows along with their significant performance parameters from which the different windows can be comparedâ€¦Â Expand
