Radial Basis Functions

Theory and Implementations

Radial Basis Functions

It is necessary to estimate parameters by approximation and interpolation in many areas-from computer graphics to inverse methods to signal processing. Radial basis functions are modern, powerful tools which are being used more widely as the limitations of other methods become apparent. Martin Buhmann provides a complete analysis of radial basic functions from the theoretical and practical implementation viewpoints. He also includes a comprehensive bibliography.
