INI Seminar Room 1
The approximation of smooth multivariate functions is known to suffer the curse of dimension. We discuss approximation of structured multivariate functions, which take the form of a ridge, their sum, or of the so-called sparse additive models. We give also results about optimality of such algorithms.
