##### Rolling Means/Maximums/Medians

Generic functions for computing rolling means, maximums and medians of ordered observations.

- Keywords
- ts

##### Usage

```
rollmean(x, k, na.pad = FALSE, align = c("center", "left", "right"), ...)
rollmax(x, k, na.pad = FALSE, align = c("center", "left", "right"), ...)
rollmedian(x, k, na.pad = FALSE, align = c("center", "left", "right"), ...)
```

##### Arguments

- x
- an object (representing a series of observations).
- k
- integer width of the rolling window. Must be odd for
`rollmedian`

. - na.pad
- logical. Should
`NA`

padding be added at beginning? - align
- character specifying whether result should be left- or right-aligned or centered (default).
- ...
- Further arguments passed to methods.

##### Details

These functions compute rolling means, maximums and medians respectively
and are thus similar to `rapply`

but are
optimized for speed.

Currently, there are methods for `"zoo"`

and `"ts"`

series and
default methods (intended for vectors). The default method of `rollmedian`

is an interface to `runmed`

.
The default method of `rollmean`

does not handle inputs that contain
`NA`

s. In such cases, use `rapply`

instead.

##### Value

- An object of the same class as
`x`

with the rolling mean/max/median.

##### Examples

```
x.Date <- as.Date(paste(2004, rep(1:4, 4:1), sample(1:28, 10), sep = "-"))
x <- zoo(rnorm(12), x.Date)
rollmean(x, 3)
rollmax(x, 3)
rollmedian(x, 3)
xm <- zoo(matrix(1:12, 4, 3), x.Date[1:4])
rollmean(xm, 3)
rollmax(xm, 3)
rollmedian(xm, 3)
rapply(xm, 3, mean) # uses rollmean
rapply(xm, 3, function(x) mean(x)) # does not use rollmean
```
