smooth_rectangular {alkahest} R Documentation

## Rectangular Smoothing

### Description

Unweighted sliding-average or rectangular Smoothing.

### Usage

smooth_rectangular(x, y, ...)

## S4 method for signature 'numeric,numeric'
smooth_rectangular(x, y, m = 3)

## S4 method for signature 'ANY,missing'
smooth_rectangular(x, m)


### Arguments

 x, y A numeric vector. If y is missing, an attempt is made to interpret x in a suitable way (see grDevices::xy.coords()). ... Currently not used. m An odd integer giving the window size (i.e. the number of adjacent points to be used; see window_sliding()).

### Details

It replaces each point in the signal with the average of m adjacent points.

### Value

Returns a list with two components x and y.

### Note

There will be (m - 1) / 2 points both at the beginning and at the end of the data series for which a complete m-width window cannot be obtained. To prevent data loss, progressively wider/narrower windows are used at both ends of the data series.

Other smoothing methods: smooth_likelihood(), smooth_loess(), smooth_savitzky(), smooth_triangular(), smooth_whittaker()

### Examples

## Simulate data with some noise
x <- seq(-4, 4, length = 100)
y <- dnorm(x) + rnorm(100, mean = 0, sd = 0.01)

## Plot spectrum
plot(x, y, type = "l", xlab = "", ylab = "")

## Rectangular smoothing
unweighted <- smooth_rectangular(x, y, m = 3)
plot(unweighted, type = "l", xlab = "", ylab = "")

## Triangular smoothing
weighted <- smooth_triangular(x, y, m = 5)
plot(weighted, type = "l", xlab = "", ylab = "")

## Loess smoothing
loess <- smooth_loess(x, y, span = 0.75)
plot(loess, type = "l", xlab = "", ylab = "")

## Savitzkyâ€“Golay filter
savitzky <- smooth_savitzky(x, y, m = 21, p = 2)
plot(savitzky, type = "l", xlab = "", ylab = "")

## Whittaker smoothing
whittaker <- smooth_whittaker(x, y, lambda = 1600, d = 2)
plot(whittaker, type = "l", xlab = "", ylab = "")
