Optimal data approximation with group invariances


Davide Barbieri


Suppose we are given a finite, typically large, dataset of L^2 functions with domain the Euclidean space or any LCA group, and a semidirectproduct group G of discrete translations and automorphisms/linear applications acting on such a domain. We consider the problem of approximating the dataset by its projection onto the subspace spanned by the action of G on a finite, ideally small, set of functions, called generators. In this seminar, we will first discuss a constructive proof that provides the generators of the optimal subspace for the approximation, and then see the results of this construction on common datasets of natural images. This is a joint work with C. Cabrelli, E. Hernández and U. Molter
