My two cents worth.
This seems to be exactly what you get if you numerically simulate a simple
RC lowpass filter with discrete timesteps. In this case samplN is the
input voltage at time N and and avg would be the output (that is :
the voltage over the capacitor).
N is given by RC/dt where dt is the time step.
This remark alows you think about the discrete filter in terms of
familiar notions such as the 3dB point, etc...
It could be worthwhile to look at discrete versions of higher order
filters. There is something about this in Horowitz and Hill I believe.
