In this contribution we describe a novel classification approach for on-line handwriting recognition. The technique combines dynamic time warping (DTW) and support vector machines (SVMs) by establishing a new SVM kernel. We call this kernel Gaussian DTW (GDTW) kernel. This kernel approach has a main advantage over common HMM techniques. It does not assume a(More)
The model order reduction methodology of reduced basis (RB) techniques offers efficient treatment of parametrized partial differential equations (P 2 DEs) by providing both approximate solution procedures and efficient error estimates. RB-methods have so far mainly been applied to finite element schemes for elliptic and parabolic problems. In the current(More)
Kernel methods are becoming increasingly popular for various kinds of machine learning tasks, the most famous being the support vector machine (SVM) for classification. The SVM is well understood when using conditionally positive definite (cpd) kernel functions. However, in practice, non-cpd kernels arise and demand application in SVMs. The procedure of(More)
Kernel methods are a class of well established and successful algorithms for pattern analysis thanks to their mathematical elegance and good performance. Numerous nonlinear extensions of pattern recognition techniques have been proposed so far based on the so-called kernel trick. The objective of this paper is twofold. First, we derive an additional kernel(More)
Inspired by the reduced basis approach and modern numerical multiscale methods, we present a new framework for an efficient treatment of heterogeneous multiscale problems. The new approach is based on the idea of considering heterogeneous multiscale problems as parametrized partial differential equations where the parameters are smooth functions. We then(More)
Reduced basis methods are an efficient tool for significantly reducing the computational complexity of solving parametrized PDEs. Originally introduced for elliptic equations, they have been generalized during the last decade to various types of elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbolic systems. In this article, we extend the reduction technique to parametrized(More)
We present a new approach to treat nonlinear operators in reduced basis approximations of parametrized evolution equations. Our approach is based on empirical interpolation of nonlinear differential operators and their Fréchet derivatives. Efficient offline/online decomposition is obtained for discrete operators that allow an efficient evaluation for a(More)
