This vectorized function computes a running mean/moving average over a continuous (time) series with a specified window width.

## Arguments

- x
A

`numeric`

vector of`length(x)`

, with the time series data.- w
The width of the moving average window. When

`w`

is even, one more value from the future is included.- align
The alignment of the window relative to the current data point. It can be one of:

`align = "center"`

: The average is assigned to the center of the window (default).`align = "left"`

: The average includes the current value and the next (w-1) values.`align = "right"`

: The average includes the current value and the previous (w-1) values.

- edges
Defines how values are computed at the start and end of the series. Options are:

`edges = "fill"`

: The average is calculated with a decreasing number of values near the edges of the vector (default).`edges = "nofill"`

: The result includes`NA`

values when the window does not cover w values.
