Delay and Sum Beamforming Equation Derivation

  • #1

Homework Statement


I have to simplify this beam form (equation 1) which simplifies to equation 2 and then finally to equation 3.

Homework Equations


equation 1: e^-ix((1-e^y)/(1-e^z)) where x = Beta*M_(1/2), y = beta*M, z= Beta

equation 2: sin(M*Beta/2)/(sin(Beta/2))

equation 3: M((sinc(M*Beta/2pi))/(sinc(Beta/2pi))) where sinc(x) = sin(pi*x)/pi*x

Eulors: e^jx = cos(x) +j*sin(x)

The Attempt at a Solution



I have tries to use eulors equation to change it to sine sand cosine but I cant seem to get the proper cancellations i am looking for.

What is M_(1/2)?
Do you mean ##e^{-i\frac{\beta}2(M-1)}\frac{1-e^{i\beta M}}{1-e^{i\beta}}##?

Sorry about the late response. It is M1/2 as a subscript, I attached a picture. I am going to the math department for some guidance since I cant seem to figure this one out. Any help would be appreciated,

It is M1/2 as a subscript,
So what is the relationship between that and M? To get your eqn 2 I need it to equal (M-1)/2.

To get it in this form we had to assume M = 2*M1/2+1. so . There were some other step to get it into the equation form but this is where it originated from.

To get it in this form
Are you saying to get eqn 1 you already assumed that?
I assume you know how to write sin x in terms of eix.
Can you see how to write 1-e-ix as some function f(x) multiplied by a sine function (not necessarily sin(x), exactly).
