Examples

Create a standard absolute exponential covariance function:

>>> import openturns as ot
>>> covModel = ot.AbsoluteExponential(2)
>>> t = [0.1, 0.3]
>>> s = [0.2, 0.4]
>>> print(covModel(s, t))
[[ 0.818731 ]]
>>> tau = [0.1, 0.3]
>>> print(covModel(tau))
[[ 0.67032 ]]


Create an absolute exponential covariance function specifying only the scale vector (amplitude is fixed to 1):

>>> covModel2 = ot.AbsoluteExponential([1.5, 2.5])
>>> covModel2bis = ot.AbsoluteExponential([1.5]*3)


Create an absolute exponential covariance function specifying the scale vector and the amplitude :

>>> covModel3 = ot.AbsoluteExponential([1.5, 2.5], [3.5])
