```Hi.  Just another option would be to use Bob's excellent idea, and solve for

dif[v_?VectorQ] := ListConvolve[

{1/2, 0, -(1/2)}, v, {2, -2},

{2*v[[-1]] - v[[-2]], 2*v[[1]] - v[[2]]}]

v = {3700, 3800, 3900, 3950, 4000,

4050, 4100, 4150, 4200, 4250, 4300,

4350, 4400, 4450, 4500, 4550, 4600,

4650};

result = {100, 100, 75, 50, 50, 50, 50,

50, 50, 50, 50, 50, 50, 50, 50, 50,

50, 50};

dif[v] == result

True
