Hello,
Many packages have a movind average function. For instance package
forecast. Or
library(sos)
findFn("moving average")
In your example, what you compute is not exactly a moving average, but
in can be computed with something like the following.
s <- (seq_along(dat) - 1) %/% 3
sapply(split(dat, s), mean)
Hope this helps,
