Waveforms and Radiation Patterns
In numerous technical applications, as well as some theoretical considerations, an enticing problem is encountered. In its most practical (and real) form the problem may be that of designing a radar (or sonar) transmitter waveform with a given spectrum such that its peak factor is a minimum. Peak factor is defined here as the range of the waveform values divided by their root-meansquare. This is important in radar and sonar, because one often wants to radiate a maximum amount of signal power, of a prescribed spectral shape, with a given peak power limitation on the transmitter.
