Something that might be of use are "WMMR filters" (do a
Google search on this term). Some of us had worked on
these many years ago. For signals, the fixed points of the
filters are piecewise constant. They have the property that
they smooth blocks of data that do not vary much but enhance
edges (regions where data varies a lot).
