As we will shortly see, this approach is not all that different from what we have learned for the linear case. 5: LS polynomial fit to a given set of points. The LS solution gives the best curve fit to a set of given points by optimizing over all curves from a family specified by a polynomial of the form y = f (x). Given a point set P := {pi }, say we want to find the bestfitting m-th order polynomial function represented by y = f (x) = m k k=0 ak x . Again, taking vertical distances from points to the curve, we want to minimize the expression n n m i=1 2 ak xki − yi (f (xi ) − yi )2 = E(a0 , .

After all, any basis spans the space, and all its vectors are uniquely represented. This question will be discussed at the end of this chapter. A vector space and a basis may have different forms. 7) is a point in RN M . The gray-level values at each pixel are the coefficients of its basis. 8 (top). Unfolding the 4 × 4 vector basis reveals that, in fact, this is a standard basis. 8 shows a linear combination of the vectors composing the values of the mini-image. 9 shows a different basis that consists of 64 vectors, each of which is a 8 × 8 image or a vector in R64 .

Once we have n, we obtain d as d = −n p 45 This page intentionally left blank Chapter 4 PCA and SVD Olga Sorkine-Hornung In this chapter, we introduce two related tools from linear algebra that have become true workhorses in countless areas of scientific computing: principal component analysis (PCA) and singular value decomposition (SVD). Essentially, we will talk about a decomposition of a given matrix into several factors that are easy to analyze and reveal important properties of the matrix and hence the data, or the problem in which the matrix arises.
