Supervized statistical classification is a vital tool for satellite image processing. It is useful not only when a discrete result, such as feature extraction or surface type, is required, but also for continuum retrievals by dividing the quantity of interest into discrete ranges. Because of the high resolution of modern satellite instruments and because of the requirement for real-time processing, any algorithm has to be fast to be useful. Here we describe an algorithm based on kernel…

### Density Estimation with Adaptive Sparse Grids for Large Data Sets

- Computer ScienceSDM
- 2014

This work presents an adaptive sparse-grid-based density estimation method which discretizes the estimated density function on basis functions centered at grid points rather than on kernels centered at the data points, so that the costs of evaluating the estimateddensity function are independent from the number of data points.
