**NAME**

PDL::Filter::LinPred - Linear predictive filtering

**SYNOPSIS**

$a = new PDL::Filter::LinPred( {NLags => 10, LagInterval => 2, LagsBehind => 2, Data => $dat}); ($pd,$corrslic) = $a->predict($dat);

**DESCRIPTION**

A filter by doing linear prediction: tries to predict the next value in a data stream as accurately as possible. The filtered data is the predicted value. The parameters are NLags Number of time lags used for prediction LagInterval How many points each lag should be LagsBehind If, for some strange reason, you wish to predict not the next but the one after that (i.e. usually f(t) is predicted from f(t-1) and f(t-2) etc., but with LagsBehind => 2, f(t) is predicted from f(t-2) and f(t-3)). Data The input data, which may contain other dimensions past the first (time). The extraneous dimensions are assumed to represent epochs so the data is just concatenated. AutoCovar As an alternative toData, you can just give the temporal autocorrelation function. Smooth Don't do prediction or filtering but smoothing. The methodpredictgives a prediction for some data plus a corresponding slice of the data, if evaluated in list context. This slice is given so that you may, if you wish, easily plot them atop each other. The rest of the documentation is under lazy evaluation.
