2-D Savitzky-Golay smoothing filter (i.e., the polynomial smoothing
filter, or the least-squares smoothing filter)

See Ref. [1] for details on the 1-D Savitzky-Golay smoothing filter.

1-D Savitzky-Golay smoothing (and differentiation) filter is given:

See Ref. [2] and [3] for details on the 2-D Savitzky-Golay smoothing filter.

x = x data point, e.g., -3:3
y = y data point, e.g., -2:2
px =x polynomial order default=1
py =y polynomial order default=1
flag_coupling = with or without the consideration of the coupling terms, between x and y. default=0
