NAME
       Statistics::Descriptive::Smoother::Exponential -	Implement exponential
       smoothing

SYNOPSIS
	 use Statistics::Descriptive::Smoother;
	 my $smoother =	Statistics::Descriptive::Smoother->instantiate({
		  method   => 'exponential',
		  coeff	   => 0.5,
		  data	   => [1, 2, 3,	4, 5],
		  samples  => [110, 120, 130, 140, 150],
	   });
	 my @smoothed_data = $smoother->get_smoothed_data();

DESCRIPTION
       This module implement the exponential smoothing algorithm to smooth the
       trend of	a series of statistical	data.

       This algorithm works well for unsmoothed	data build with	big number of
       samples.	If this	is not the case	you might consider using the "Weighted
       Exponential" one.

       The algorithm implements	the following formula:

       S(0) = X(0)

       S(t) = C*S(t-1) + (1-C)*X(t)

       where:

       o  t = index in the series

       o  S(t) = smoothed series value at position t

       o  C = smoothing	coefficient. Value in the [0;1]	range. 0 means that
	  the series is	not smoothed at	all, while 1 the series	is universally
	  equal	to the initial unsmoothed value.

       o  X(t) = unsmoothed series value at position t

METHODS
       $stats->get_smoothed_data();
	    Returns a copy of the smoothed data	array.
