Abstract

The paper outlines a finite sample version of exponential smoothing, and proposes a formula for estimating the smoothing parameter. The resulting method, which can be implemented on a recursive basis over time, is compared with alternative approaches, such as progressive numerical optimization of the smoothing parameter and adaptive forecasting on both synthetic and real data.
