Weighted Mean - Decreasing Strength of Interactions

Decreasing Strength of Interactions

Consider the time series of an independent variable and a dependent variable, with observations sampled at discrete times . In many common situations, the value of at time depends not only on but also on its past values. Commonly, the strength of this dependence decreases as the separation of observations in time increases. To model this situation, one may replace the independent variable by its sliding mean for a window size .

z_k=sum_{i=1}^m w_i_x_{k+1-i}.

Famous quotes containing the words interactions, decreasing and/or strength:

    Whereas children can learn from their interactions with their parents how to get along in one sort of social hierarchy—that of the family—it is from their interactions with peers that they can best learn how to survive among equals in a wide range of social situations.
    Zick Rubin (20th century)

    Have you not a moist eye, a dry hand, a yellow cheek, a white
    beard, a decreasing leg, an increasing belly? Is not your
    voice broken, your wind short, your chin double, your wit
    single, and every part about you blasted with antiquity? and
    will you yet call yourself young?
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I believe that Harmon would be the easiest to defeat, though he might gain much strength from the Republicans. Clark would surely lose New York. I am beginning to feel that by some stroke of genius they may name Woodrow Wilson, and that seems a pretty hard tussle.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)
