# remez

Remez exchange algorithm for the weighted chebyshev approximation of a continuous function with a sum of cosines.

### Syntax

an=remez(guess,mag,fgrid,weight)

### Arguments

- guess
real array of size

`n+2 the`

initial guess- fgrid
real array of size

`ng`

: the grid of normalized frequency points in [0,.5[- mag
real array of size

`ng`

: the desired magnitude on grid`fg`

- weight
real array of size

`ng`

: weighting function on error on grid`fg`

- an
real array of size

`n`

: cosine coefficients

### Description

Minimax approximation of a frequency domain magnitude response. The approximation takes the form

An FIR, linear-phase filter can be obtained from the output of
`remez`

by using the following commands:

hn(1:nc-1)=an(nc:-1:2)/2; hn(nc)=an(1); hn(nc+1:2*nc-1)=an(2:nc)/2;

This function is mainly intended to be called by the remezb function.
