    itermmean

    NPM version Build Status Coverage Status

    Create an iterator which iteratively computes a moving arithmetic mean.

    For a window of size W, the arithmetic mean is defined as

    Equation for the arithmetic mean.

    Installation

    npm install @stdlib/stats-iter-mmean

    Usage

    var itermmean = require( '@stdlib/stats-iter-mmean' );

    itermmean( iterator, W )

    Returns an iterator which iteratively computes a moving arithmetic mean. The W parameter defines the number of iterated values over which to compute the moving mean.

    var array2iterator = require( '@stdlib/array-to-iterator' );
    
    var arr = array2iterator( [ 2.0, 1.0, 3.0, -7.0, -5.0 ] );
    var it = itermmean( arr, 3 );
    
    // Fill the window...
    var m = it.next().value; // [2.0]
    // returns 2.0
    
    m = it.next().value; // [2.0, 1.0]
    // returns 1.5
    
    m = it.next().value; // [2.0, 1.0, 3.0]
    // returns 2.0
    
    // Window begins sliding...
    m = it.next().value; // [1.0, 3.0, -7.0]
    // returns -1.0
    
    m = it.next().value; // [3.0, -7.0, -5.0]
    // returns -3.0

    Notes

    • If an iterated value is non-numeric (including NaN), the function returns NaN for at least W-1 future invocations. If non-numeric iterated values are possible, you are advised to provide an iterator which type checks and handles non-numeric values accordingly.
    • As W values are needed to fill the window buffer, the first W-1 returned values are calculated from smaller sample sizes. Until the window is full, each returned value is calculated from all previously iterated values.

    Examples

    var runif = require( '@stdlib/random-iter-uniform' );
    var itermmean = require( '@stdlib/stats-iter-mmean' );
    
    // Create an iterator for generating uniformly distributed pseudorandom numbers:
    var rand = runif( -10.0, 10.0, {
        'seed': 1234,
        'iter': 100
    });
    
    // Create an iterator for iteratively computing a moving arithmetic mean:
    var it = itermmean( rand, 3 );
    
    // Perform manual iteration...
    var v;
    while ( true ) {
        v = it.next();
        if ( typeof v.value === 'number' ) {
            console.log( 'Mean: %d', v.value );
        }
        if ( v.done ) {
            break;
        }
    }
