Window algorithm for bidimensional arrays

This function uses a window algorithm to obtain the weights and phases of each element in a bidimensional array. The results of the function define the pointing of the array in the given direction.

void bidirectional_window(double d1, int N1, double d2, int N2, double theta, double phi, double A, double B) { //d1:element spacing of array x in units of lambda
											                                                         //N1:number of array elements of array x
