Refinement of Reproducing Kernels

Yuesheng Xu, Haizhang Zhang; 10(4):107−140, 2009.

Abstract

We continue our recent study on constructing a refinement kernel for a given kernel so that the reproducing kernel Hilbert space associated with the refinement kernel contains that with the original kernel as a subspace. To motivate this study, we first develop a refinement kernel method for learning, which gives an efficient algorithm for updating a learning predictor. Several characterizations of refinement kernels are then presented. It is shown that a nontrivial refinement kernel for a given kernel always exists if the input space has an infinite cardinal number. Refinement kernels for translation invariant kernels and Hilbert-Schmidt kernels are investigated. Various concrete examples are provided.
