Weakly Admissible polynomial Meshes and Pluripotential Numerics


Polynomial Meshes are geometry-dependent discretizations of a d-dimensional compact set, that are suitable for polynomial Least Squares approximation and contain discrete extremal subsets of Fekete and Leja type for polynomial interpolation (computable by standard numerical linear algebra algorithms). Moreover, polynomial meshes and their discrete extremal subsets are a tool for numerical approximations in pluripotential theory (multivariate transfinite diameter, pluripotential Green function), and have been also used in the discretization of elliptic PDEs and in the framework of multivariate polynomial optimization. Recently, approximate Fekete points extracted from polynomial meshes have been adopted in state of the art codes for the implementation of FIR digital filters on multi-interval domains (see ACM TOMS 43-2016).
