KarhunenLoeveSVDAlgorithm
(*args)¶ Computation of KarhunenLoeve decomposition using SVD approximation.
 Available constructors:
KarhunenLoeveSVDAlgorithm(sample, s, centeredFlag)
KarhunenLoeveSVDAlgorithm(sample, verticesWeights, s, centeredFlag)
KarhunenLoeveSVDAlgorithm(sample, verticesWeights, sampleWeights, s, centeredFlag)
Parameters: sample :
ProcessSample
The sample containing the observations.
verticesWeights : sequence of float
The weights associated to the vertices of the mesh defining the sample.
sampleWeights : sequence of float
The weights associated to the fields of the sample.
s : float,
The threshold used to select the most significant eigenmodes, defined in
KarhunenLoeveAlgorithm
.centeredFlag : logical
Flag to tell if the sample is drawn according to a centered process or if it has to be centered using the empirical mean. The default value is False.
Notes
The KarhunenLoeve SVD algorithm solves the Fredholm problem associated to the covariance function : see
KarhunenLoeveAlgorithm
to get the notations.The SVD approach is a particular case of the quadrature approach (see
KarhunenLoeveQuadratureAlgorithm
) where we consider the functional basis of defined on by:The SVD approach is used when the covariance function is not explicitely known but only through fields of the associated stochastic process : .
It consists in :
 approximating by its empirical estimator where and if the process is centered and otherwise;
 taking the vertices of the mesh of as the quadrature points.
We suppose now that , and we note .
As the matrix is invertible, the Galerkin and collocation approaches are equivalent and both lead to the following singular value problem for :
(1)¶
The SVD decomposition of writes:
where we have , , such that :
 ,
 ,
 .
Then the columns of are the eigenvectors of associated to the eigenvalues .
We deduce the modes and eigenvalues of the Fredholm problem for :
We have:
Examples
Create a KarhunenLoeve SVD algorithm:
>>> import openturns as ot >>> mesh = ot.IntervalMesher([10]*2).build(ot.Interval([1.0]*2, [1.0]*2)) >>> s = 0.01 >>> model = ot.AbsoluteExponential([1.0]*2) >>> sample = ot.GaussianProcess(model, mesh).getSample(8) >>> algorithm = ot.KarhunenLoeveSVDAlgorithm(sample, s)
Run it!
>>> algorithm.run() >>> result = algorithm.getResult()
