healpixwindow
This IDL facility provides the window function in l associated with the
Healpix pixel of resolution Nside. Location in HEALPix directory tree:
src/idl/misc/healpixwindow.pro
FORMAT IDL>
wpix=HEALPIXWINDOW (Nside [, Dim, Directory])
QUALIFIERS

Nside
 resolution parameter

Wpix
 the pixel window function, computed for the multipoles l in {0,...,4Nside}

Dim
 scalar integer, optional.
If absent or set to 0 or 1,
the output has size (4 Nside+1) and is the temperature
window function;
if set to Dim ,
the output has size (4 Nside+1,Dim)
and contains in that order :
the TEMPERATURE window function,
the GRAD/ELECTRIC polarization one
the CURL/MAGNETIC polarization one
the TEMPERATURE*GRAD one.

Directory
 directory in which the precomputed pixel window file is looked for.
default:$HEALPIX/data/
DESCRIPTION
healpixwindow computes the l space window function due to the finite size of the
HEALPix pixels. The typical size of a pixel (square root of its uniform surface
area) is
arcmin.
If a unpixelised sky has a power spectrum C(l), the same
sky pixelised with a resolution parameter Nside
will have the power spectrum
where W(l) is given by healpixwindow (Nside). The polarized
pixel window function is also provided (when Dim > 1).
This routine reads some FITS files located in the subdirectory data/ of the
HEALPix distribution, unless the keyword Directory is set otherwise.
