Juliusz Jabłecki <juliusz.jablecki@student.uw.edu.pl>: I disagree that replacing missings by zeros in an infinite sum should be fine. I think the programming is fairly easy, but given that the task seems like a bad idea, not worth the time. Consider what such a method would do to a time series of 10 obs with b=0.5, picking some arbitrary nonzero X_t values for t in [1,10]. The obs near t=1 and t=10 will be smoothed toward zero, for no good reason. You could get very close to what you claim to want by running -lpoly- (possibly within panel using -statsby- perhaps) to do local mean smoothing using a Gaussian kernel and an appropriately chosen bandwidth, I think. But again, it's not clear to me that this is a good idea. On 12/4/07, Juliusz Jabłecki <juliusz.jablecki@student.uw.edu.pl> wrote: > > The difficulty here is the infinite window width.
