Approximation in rough native spaces by shifts of smooth kernels on spheres. (English) Zbl 1082.41018

A kernel is a function 𝒦C(S d ×S d ), where S d is the unit sphere in d+1 . If the kernel 𝒦 is rotational invariant on S d , then there is a function φ:[-1,1] such that 𝒦(x,y)=φ(xy), where xy=x,y denotes the usual inner product in d+1 · The function φ is called a zonal function and 𝒦 a zonal kernel. It is positively definite if and only if φ is positively definite. In the following φ is supposed strictly positively definite. Denote by k (0) the linear space of all homogeneous harmonic polynomials of degree k and let d k =dim k (0) · If {Y k,μ :μ=1,···,d k }, is an orthonormal basis of k (0) , then a zonal function φ admits the expansion φ(xy)= k=0 a k μ=1 d k Y k,μ (x)Y k,μ (y)·

Denote by PH φ the linear space of all finite linear combinations of zonal shifts of φ equipped with the inner product f,g= ξΞ ζΘ c ξ d ζ φ(ξζ), for f= ξΞ c ξ φ(ξ·) and g= ζΘ d ζ φ(ζ·), where Ξ,Θ are finite subsets of S d · The completion of PH φ is called the native space 𝒩 φ and it is a reproducing kernel Hilbert space with kernel φ· Considering two zonal functions, φ as above, and ψ with the expansion coefficients (b k ) k=0 , then 𝒩 φ 𝒩 ψ , provided 0a k b k ,k=0,1,···, but this embedding is not isometric in general. The authors define a multiplier operator T:𝒩 φ 𝒩 ψ and prove that, for a finite subset Ξ of S d , every f𝒩 ψ has a unique best approximation element s φ [f]= ξΞ c ξ φ(·ξ) in φ Ξ =span{φ(·ξ):ξΞ}, and that the coefficients c ξ ,ξΞ, are determined by the interpolation condition T(s φ [f])=T(f)| Ξ · They give also an estimate of the error, namely

ψ x -s φ [ψ x ] 𝒩 ψ C k>L b k /d k 1/2 ,

where ψ x =ψ(x·),L satisfies h(Ξ)1/(2L),h(Ξ) being the mesh of the finite set ΞS d , and the constant C is independent of x.
