Notes
Consider with , and with finite variance: .
When , the functional chaos algorithm is used on each marginal of , using the same multivariate orthonormal basis for all the marginals. Thus, the algorithm is detailed here for a scalar output and .
Let be an isoprobabilistic transformation such that . We note , then .
Let be an orthonormal multivariate basis of .
Then the functional chaos decomposition of f writes:
which can be truncated to the finite set :
The approximation can be used to build an efficient random generator of based on the random vector . It writes:
For more details, see
FunctionalChaosRandomVector
.The functional chaos decomposition can be used to build a meta model of g, which writes:
If the basis has been obtained by tensorisation of univariate orthonormal basis, then the distribution writes . In that case only, the Sobol indices can easily be deduced from the coefficients .
We detail here all the steps required in order to create a functional chaos algorithm.
Step 1  Construction of the multivariate orthonormal basis: the multivariate orthonornal basis is built as the tensor product of orthonormal univariate families.
The univariate bases may be:
 polynomials: the associated distribution is continuous or discrete.
Note that it is possible to build the polynomial family orthonormal to any univariate
distribution under some conditions.
For more details, see
StandardDistributionPolynomialFactory
;  Haar wavelets: they enable to approximate functions with discontinuities.
For more details, see
HaarWaveletFactory
,;  Fourier series: for more details, see
FourierSeriesFactory
.
Furthermore, the numerotation of the multivariate orthonormal basis is given by an enumerate function which defines a regular way to generate the collection of degres used for the univariate polynomials : an enumerate function represents a bijection . See
LinearEnumerateFunction
orHyperbolicAnisotropicEnumerateFunction
for more details.Step 2  Truncation strategy of the multivariate orthonormal basis: a strategy must be chosen for the selection of the different terms of the multivariate basis. The selected terms are gathered in the subset K.
For more details on the possible strategies, see
FixedStrategy
,SequentialStrategy
andCleaningStrategy
.Step 3  Evaluation strategy of the coefficients: a strategy must be chosen for the estimation of te coefficients . The vector is equivalently defined by:
(1)¶
or
(2)¶
where the mean is evaluated with respect to the measure .
Relation (1) means that the coefficients minimize the quadratic error between the model and the polynomial approximation. For more details, see
LeastSquaresStrategy
.Relation (2) means that is the scalar product of the model with the kth element of the orthonormal basis . For more details, see
IntegrationStrategy
.Examples
Create the model:
>>> import openturns as ot >>> ot.RandomGenerator.SetSeed(0) >>> inputDim = 1 >>> model = ot.SymbolicFunction(['x'], ['x*sin(x)']) >>> distribution = ot.ComposedDistribution([ot.Uniform()]*inputDim)
Build the multivariate orthonormal basis:
>>> polyColl = [0.0]*inputDim >>> for i in range(distribution.getDimension()): ... polyColl[i] = ot.StandardDistributionPolynomialFactory(distribution.getMarginal(i)) >>> enumerateFunction = ot.LinearEnumerateFunction(inputDim) >>> productBasis = ot.OrthogonalProductPolynomialFactory(polyColl, enumerateFunction)
Define the strategy to truncate the multivariate orthonormal basis: We choose all the polynomials of degree <= 4
>>> degree = 4 >>> indexMax = enumerateFunction.getStrataCumulatedCardinal(degree) >>> print(indexMax) 5
We keep all the polynomials of degree <= 4 (which corresponds to the 5 first ones):
>>> adaptiveStrategy = ot.FixedStrategy(productBasis, indexMax)
Define the evaluation strategy of the coefficients:
>>> samplingSize = 50 >>> experiment = ot.MonteCarloExperiment(samplingSize) >>> projectionStrategy = ot.LeastSquaresStrategy(experiment)
Create the Functional Chaos Algorithm:
>>> algo = ot.FunctionalChaosAlgorithm(model, distribution, adaptiveStrategy, ... projectionStrategy) >>> algo.run()
Get the result:
>>> functionalChaosResult = algo.getResult() >>> metamodel = functionalChaosResult.getMetaModel()
Test it:
>>> X = [0.5] >>> print(model(X)) [0.239713] >>> print(metamodel(X)) [0.239514]
