pandas.rolling_window(arg, window=None, win_type=None, min_periods=None, freq=None, center=False, mean=True, time_rule=None, axis=0, **kwargs)

Applies a moving window of type window_type and size window on the data.

Parameters :

arg : Series, DataFrame

window : int or ndarray

Weighting window specification. If the window is an integer, then it is treated as the window length and win_type is required

win_type : str, default None

Window type (see Notes)

min_periods : int

Minimum number of observations in window required to have a value.

freq : None or string alias / date offset object, default=None

Frequency to conform to before computing statistic

center : boolean, default False

Whether the label should correspond with center of window

mean : boolean, default True

If True computes weighted mean, else weighted sum

time_rule : Legacy alias for freq

axis : {0, 1}, default 0

Returns :

y : type of input argument
