Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A basic and important problem in numerical computation is the need to resolve complicated functions into simpler, easier-to-compute functions. Good numerical methods based on the theory of the approximation of functions have many applications in numerous branches of applied mathematics, such as computer-aided geometric design, machine learning, and signal processing. The primary purpose of this Special Issue is to highlight the recent progress made in the theory and application of function approximation. Topics may include, but are not limited to, the following: multivariate approximation, numerical integration, optimization, machine learning, signal processing, and computer-aided geometric design.

This paper examines the tractability of multivariate approximation problems under the normalized error criterion for a zero-mean Gaussian measure in an average-case setting. The Gaussian measure is associated with a covariance kernel, which is represented by the tensor product of one-dimensional kernels corresponding to Euler and Wiener integrated processes with non-negative and nondecreasing smoothness parameters {rd}dN. We give matching sufficient and necessary conditions for various concepts of tractability in terms of the asymptotic properties of the regularity parameters, except for (s, 0)-WT. Full article

We propose the Rescaled Matching Pursuit (RMP) algorithm to recover sparse signals in high-dimensional Euclidean spaces. The RMP algorithm has less computational complexity than other greedy-type algorithms, such as Orthogonal Matching Pursuit (OMP). We show that if the restricted isometry property is satisfied, then the upper bound of the error between the original signal and its approximation can be derived. Furthermore, we prove that the RMP algorithm can find the correct support of sparse signals from random measurements with a high probability. Our numerical experiments also verify this conclusion and show that RMP is stable with the noise. So, the RMP algorithm is a suitable method for recovering sparse signals. Full article

The paper concerns a nonlinear second-order system of coupled PDEs, having the principal part in divergence form and subject to in-homogeneous dynamic boundary conditions, for both θ(t,x) and φ(t,x). Two main topics are addressed here, as follows. First, under a certain hypothesis on the input data, f1, f2, w1, w2, α, ξ, θ0, α0, φ0, and ξ0, we prove the well-posedness of a solution θ,α,φ,ξ, which is θ(t,x),α(t,x)Wp1,2(Q)×Wp1,2(Σ), φ(t,x),ξ(t,x)Wν1,2(Q)×Wp1,2(Σ), ν=min{q,μ}. According to the new formulation of the problem, we extend the previous results, allowing the new mathematical model to be even more complete to describe the diversity of physical phenomena to which it can be applied: interface problems, image analysis, epidemics, etc. The main goal of the present paper is to develop an iterative scheme of fractional-step type in order to approximate the unique solution to the nonlinear second-order system. The convergence result is established for the new numerical method, and on the basis of this approach, a conceptual algorithm, alg-frac_sec-ord_u+varphi_dbc, is elaborated. The benefit brought by such a method consists of simplifying the computations so that the time required to approximate the solutions decreases significantly. Some conclusions are given as well as new research topics for the future. Full article

In this work, vector-valued continuous functions are approximated uniformly on the unit hypercube by Shepard operators. If λ denotes the usual parameter of the Shepard operators and m is the dimension of the hypercube, then our results show that it is possible to obtain a uniform approximation of a continuous vector-valued function by these operators when λm+1. By using three-dimensional parametric plots, we illustrate this uniform approximation for some vector-valued functions. Finally, the influence in approximation by regular summability processes is studied, and their motivation is shown. Full article
