Exponential smoothing, Mathematics

Exponential smoothing

It is a weighted moving average technique, this is described by:

New forecast = Old forecast + a (Latest Observation - Old forecast)

Whereas a = Smoothing constant

This method includes automatic weighing of past data along with weights that decrease exponentially with time.
