### How is that after random numbers with their negatives alternating passing through 5, 4, 3 order moving average filter, become quasi sinusoidals?

I have passed random numbers $${89, 58, 13, 70, 24}$$ with their negatives alternating, through 5 order moving average filter and output was positive and negative numbers alternating. After I have ...

### Phase response of moving average filter — how to interpret?

There are many articles on the frequency response of the moving average filter but they all seem to focus on magnitude. However the phase response is intriguing and I find it hard to interpret. The ...

### Smoothing the discrete acceleration

In order to know if my signal is increasing or decreasing, I'm using the discrete derivative $y[n] = x[n] - x[n-1]$ or a smoothed version of it (for example Exponential Weight Moving Average of $y[n]$ ...

### Moving average vs. Moving median

I have read in many places that Moving median is a bit better than Moving average for some applications, because it is less sensitive to outliers. I wanted to test this assertion on real data, but I ...

### extrapolate turning points for a sine weighted moving average?

On a stationary signal a sine-weighted moving average is calculated (SWMA: the coefficient vector looks like the first (>0) part of a sinusoid). The SWMA looks like this: very smooth: The future is ...

### Realization of IIR resonator

The measure of a given frequency $\omega$ in a signal $x(t)$ is: $\frac{1}{N}\sum\limits^N_{t=0}x\left(t\right)e^{^{-i \omega t}}$ This is basically an average of the correlation between the signal ...
