The Harmonic Analysis of Kernel Functions

15 Mar 2017  ·  Zorzi Mattia, Chiuso Alessandro ·

Kernel-based methods have been recently introduced for linear system identification as an alternative to parametric prediction error methods. Adopting the Bayesian perspective, the impulse response is modeled as a non-stationary Gaussian process with zero mean and with a certain kernel (i.e. covariance) function... Choosing the kernel is one of the most challenging and important issues. In the present paper we introduce the harmonic analysis of this non-stationary process, and argue that this is an important tool which helps in designing such kernel. Furthermore, this analysis suggests also an effective way to approximate the kernel, which allows to reduce the computational burden of the identification procedure. read more
