# movsum

Moving sum

## Syntax

## Description

`M = movsum(`

returns
an array of local `A`

,`k`

)`k`

-point sums, where each sum
is calculated over a sliding window of length `k`

across
neighboring elements of `A`

. When `k`

is
odd, the window is centered about the element in the current position.
When `k`

is even, the window is centered about the
current and previous elements. The window size is automatically truncated
at the endpoints when there are not enough elements to fill the window.
When the window is truncated, the sum is taken over only the elements
that fill the window. `M`

is the same size as `A`

.

If

`A`

is a vector, then`movsum`

operates along the length of the vector`A`

.If

`A`

is a multidimensional array, then`movsum`

operates along the first dimension of`A`

whose size does not equal 1.

`M = movsum(___,`

specifies the
dimension of `dim`

)`A`

to operate along for any of the previous syntaxes.
For example, if `A`

is a matrix, then
`movsum(A,k,2)`

operates along the columns of
`A`

, computing the `k`

-element sliding sum for
each row.

`M = movsum(___,`

specifies
whether to include or omit `nanflag`

)`NaN`

values in `A`

.
For example, `movsum(A,k,"omitnan")`

ignores all
`NaN`

values when computing each sum. By default,
`movsum`

includes `NaN`

values.

`M = movsum(___,`

specifies
additional parameters for the sum using one or more name-value arguments. For
example, if `Name,Value`

)`x`

is a time vector, then
`movsum(A,k,"SamplePoints",x)`

computes the moving sum of
`A`

relative to the times in `x`

.
