scipy.signal.sweep_poly(t, poly, phi=0)

Frequency-swept cosine generator, with a time-dependent frequency specified as a polynomial.

This function generates a sinusoidal function whose instantaneous frequency varies with time. The frequency at time t is given by the polynomial poly.

Parameters :

t : ndarray

Times at which to evaluate the waveform.

poly : 1D ndarray (or array-like), or instance of numpy.poly1d

The desired frequency expressed as a polynomial. If poly is a list or ndarray of length n, then the elements of poly are the coefficients of the polynomial, and the instantaneous frequency is

f(t) = poly[0]*t**(n-1) + poly[1]*t**(n-2) + ... + poly[n-1]

If poly is an instance of numpy.poly1d, then the instantaneous frequency is

f(t) = poly(t)

phi : float, optional

Phase offset, in degrees. Default is 0.

Returns :

A numpy array containing the signal evaluated at ‘t’ with the requested :

time-varying frequency. More precisely, the function returns :

cos(phase + (pi/180)*phi)

where `phase` is the integral (from 0 to t) of ``2 * pi * f(t)``; :

``f(t)`` is defined above. :
