In recursive filters , the output at the moment is a function of the output values at the previous moments and, probably, of the input values.
A major advantage of recursive filters over nonrecursive filters is that they are computationally simpler. For example, for any recursive linear filter , there is a functionally equivalent non-recursive linear filter. But the non-recursive variant may be characterized by an infinitely large window size and, hence, be difficult for practical implementation. (See, for example, explanations on the exponential filter ).
Mathematically, a recursive filter may be described by the following general expression:
is an arbitrary function of the previous output values and input values , linear or nonlinear.
Planning on taking an introductory statistics course, but not sure if you need to start at the beginning? Review the course description for each of our introductory statistics courses and estimate which best matches your level, then take the self test for that course. If you get all or almost all the questions correct, move on and take the next test.
