OrthogonalDirection¶

class OrthogonalDirection(*args)

Sampling following the orthogonal direction strategy.

Available constructor:

OrthogonalDirection()

OrthogonalDirection(dimension, k)

Parameters
dimensioninteger

The dimension of the standard space. By default, but automatically updated by the calling class.

kint

The number of elements in the linear combinations. By default, but automatically updated by the calling class.

Notes

This strategy is parameterized by , where is the dimension of the input random vector . We generate one direct orthonormalized basis uniformly distributed in the set of direct orthonormal bases. We consider all the normalized linear combinations of vectors chosen within the vectors of the basis, where the coefficients of the linear combinations are in . This generates new vectors . We sample according to all the directions defined by the vectors .

If , we consider all the axes of the standard space.
