Does that formula have a name? There might be a function already built to deal with it.

Might be worth explaining what the intention/result of the formula is then so that other experts with more mathematical knowledge would recognise it.

the intention of the formulation is predicting the value X at Step N depending on the previous values of X ,by applying a sort of exponential weighted Average

foR EXEMPLE at the step N=2 and the weight w=0.03 the Formulavalue = 7 e^((0.03)*1)+50e((0.03)*0)/(e^((0.03)*1) +1)
