CATCH: CaratheodoryTchakaloff Subsampling
A discrete version of Tchakaloff theorem on the existence
of positive algebraic cubature formulas, that can be proved by the
wellknown Caratheodory theorem on conical
combinations of finitedimensional vectors, entails that the information
required for multivariate polynomial approximation can be suitably
compressed. The framework here is approximating a discrete
measure by another one, with the same polynomial moments up to a
certain degree, and a (much) smaller support.
Extracting such
"CaratheodoryTchakaloff
points" from the support
of discrete measures by Linear or Quadratic Programming, we obtain
compression of Algebraic Quadrature, QMC
integration, Least
Squares approximation and Polynomial Meshes on multivariate
compact sets and manifolds.
Applications arise, for example, in the construction
of efficient sensor networks (geospatial analysis),
in optical system design (ray tracing method), and
in numerical cubature on
polygonal/polyhedral elements for the discretization of PDEs.
