SoftDTW centroid function as proposed in Cuturi and Blondel (2017).

series 
A matrix or data frame where each row is a time series, or a list where each element is a time series. Multivariate series should be provided as a list of matrices where time spans the rows and the variables span the columns of each matrix. 
centroid 
Optionally, a time series to use as reference. Defaults to a random series of

gamma 
Positive regularization parameter, with lower values resulting in less smoothing. 
weights 
A vector of weights for each element of

Further arguments for the optimization backend (except 
error.check 
Logical indicating whether the function should try to detect inconsistencies and give more informative errors messages. Also used internally to avoid repeating checks. 
opts 
List of options to pass to 
This function can delegate the optimization to the nloptr package. For that to happen, you
must load it with either base::library()
or base::loadNamespace()
. If the aforementioned is
not fulfilled, the function will delegate to stats::optim()
.
The resulting centroid, with the optimization results as attributes (except for the returned centroid).
Please note that running tasks in parallel does not guarantee faster computations. The overhead introduced is sometimes too large, and it's better to run tasks sequentially.
This function uses the RcppParallel package for parallelization.
It uses all available threads by default (see RcppParallel::defaultNumThreads()
),
but this can be changed by the user with RcppParallel::setThreadOptions()
.
An exception to the above is when it is called within a foreach
parallel loop made by dtwclust.
If the parallel workers do not have the number of threads explicitly specified,
this function will default to 1 thread per worker.

For unknown reasons, this function has returned different results (in the order of 1e6) when using multithreading in x64 Windows installations in comparison to other environments (using nloptr v1.0.4). Consider limiting the number of threads if you run into reproducibility problems.
