Re: [R] moving correlation coef ?

Thank you for your answers.

In fact, i believe my question wasn't precise enough. I don't want to have a moving/sliding windows over the data to correlate (i am already doing that).

If I have 2 vectors
X = (x1, x2, x3, ..., xt)
Y = (y1, y2, x3, ..., yt)
I want the most recent elements (t) to have a heavier weight in the correlation calculus than the older ones (1).

I think that one simple way to do that is for example to compute cor() over XP, YP where
XP = (x1, x2, x2, x3, x3, x3, ..., xt, xt, xt) YP = (y1, y2, y2, y3, y3, y3, ..., yt, yt, yt) ie where each element is repeated several times according to its freshness.
It's quite naive ! so if there is a cleaver idea, many thanks.
