Convergence rate of the data-independent P-greedy algorithm in kernel-based approximation

, and . Dolomites Research Notes on Approximation (2017)


Kernel-based methods provide flexible and accurate algorithms for the reconstruction of functions from meshless samples. A major question in the use of such methods is the influence of the samples� locations on the behavior of the approximation, and feasible optimal strategies are not known for general problems. Nevertheless, efficient and greedy point-selection strategies are known. This paper gives a proof of the convergence rate of the data-independent $P$-greedy algorithm, based on the application of the convergence theory for greedy algorithms in reduced basis methods. The resulting rate of convergence is shown to be quasi-optimal in the case of kernels generating Sobolev spaces. As a consequence, this convergence rate proves that, for kernels of Sobolev spaces, the points selected by the algorithm are asymptotically uniformly distributed, as conjectured in the paper where the algorithm has been introduced
