A major task in data mining is to develop automatic techniques to process and to detect patterns in very large data sets. An important data mining technique is multivariate regression, and an essential sub task is the estimation of interaction surfaces, i.e. the estimation of functions of two variables. Thin plate splines provide a very good method to… CONTINUE READING
