### Is the typical implementation of low pass filter in C code actually not a typical low pass filter?

Quite often in C code you see something along the lines of: $$y = (1-a) y_{prev} + input * a$$ ..where $a$ is some small number. This equation then runs in discrete intervals at the loop rate. ...

### What is the name of this digital low pass filter?

I found this digital filter in code I am working on. It is a low pass filter. In the code it is called an "alpha filter", but it is not the same as the alpha filter mentioned here. I post the ...

### Sequential Form of the Least Squares Estimator for Linear Least Squares Model

I'm currently working on a project in which I need to find the tilt of a surface. Let's assume I'm only concerned with a single dimension tilt (i.e. slope) to begin. I currently have the ability to ...

### Why is the first value in digital first-order IIR filter impulse response not the largest?

When I create a digital first-order IIR low-pass filter with scipy (code below), I get the following coefficients: B: [ 0.1367 0.1367] A: [ 1. -0.7265] The ...

### Is there a way to derive an FIR filter using an IIR filter?

I know there's a thread similar to this one here, but the OP is asking the reverse of what I'm trying to find here. I've done some research on the web with very few sources coming up with actual ...

### Is a leaky integrator the same thing as a low pass filter?

The equation governing a leaky integrator (according to Wikipedia at least) is $\frac{d\mathcal{O}}{dt} + A\mathcal{O}(t) = \mathcal{I}(t)$. Is a continuous-time leaky integrator thus the same ...

### How does this “simple filter” work?

I'm new to DSP, and I'm using this basic "1-pole LPF" Param Smooth filter which "smooth" param when I change it. The code is pretty simple: ...
Please help me understand smoothing of data. This is a follow up to my previous question posted here. Especially the top answer by Junuxx where he says a way of smoothing a function $f(x)$ is:  f'[...
