Hi Martin,
Off hand I do not know of a pre-defined function to do it, but the
"z-transformation" is just the inverse hyperbolic function, the mean
is just the mean, and the back transformation is the hypoerbolic
function so...
############
x <- c(.5, .4)
tanh(mean(atanh(x)))
############
should do it.
Cheers,
Josh
