Dyadic Stream Average

  The dyadic stream average operation (section 4.2.1) is extremely simple; n input digits are required to generate n output digits, and each stage requires one dyadic digit operation. The size of the dyadic digits will not grow substantially as each digit of the output stream is simply the average of the two input digits. There is no branching as the algorithm proceeds.
