# LeastSquaresStrategy¶

class LeastSquaresStrategy(*args)

Least squares strategy for the approximation coefficients.

Available constructors:

LeastSquaresStrategy(weightedExp)

LeastSquaresStrategy(weightedExp, approxAlgoImpFact)

LeastSquaresStrategy(measure, approxAlgoImpFact)

LeastSquaresStrategy(measure, weightedExp, approxAlgoImpFact)

LeastSquaresStrategy(inputSample, outputSample, approxAlgoImpFact)

LeastSquaresStrategy(inputSample, weights, outputSample, approxAlgoImpFact)

Parameters
weightedExpWeightedExperiment

Experimental design used for the transformed input data. By default the class MonteCarloExperiment is used.

approxAlgoImpFactApproximationAlgorithmImplementationFactory

The factory that builds the desired ApproximationAlgorithm. By default the class PenalizedLeastSquaresAlgorithmFactory is used.

measureDistribution

Distribution with respect to which the basis is orthonormal. By default, the limit measure defined within the class WeightedExperiment is used.

inputSample, outputSample2-d sequence of float

The input random variables and the output samples that describe the model.

weightssequence of float

Numerical point that are the weights associated to the input sample points such that the corresponding weighted experiment is a good approximation of . If not precised, all weights are equals to , where is the size of the sample.

Notes

This class is not usable because it has sense only within the FunctionalChaosAlgorithm : the least squares strategy evaluates the coefficients of the polynomials decomposition as follows:

where .

The mean expectation is approximated by a relation of type:

where is a function defined as:

In the approximation of the mean expectation, the set I, the points and the weights are evaluated from methods implemented in the WeightedExperiment.
