Instances of computational optimal recovery: Refined approximability models Academic Article uri icon


  • Models based on approximation capabilities have recently been studied in the context of Optimal Recovery. These models, however, are not compatible with overparametrization, since model- and data-consistent functions could then be unbounded. This drawback motivates the introduction of refined approximability models featuring an added boundedness condition. Thus, two new models are proposed in this article: one where the boundedness applies to the target functions (first type) and one where the boundedness applies to the approximants (second type). For both types of model, optimal maps for the recovery of linear functionals are first described on an abstract level before their efficient constructions are addressed. By exploiting techniques from semidefinite programming, these constructions are explicitly carried out on a common example involving polynomial subspaces of $mathcal{C}[-1,1]$.
