# Emulating computationally expensive dynamical simulators using Gaussian processes

@inproceedings{Mohammadi2021EmulatingCE, title={Emulating computationally expensive dynamical simulators using Gaussian processes}, author={Hossein Mohammadi and Peter Challenor and Marc Goodfellow}, year={2021} }

A Gaussian process (GP)-based methodology is proposed to emulate computationally expensive dynamical computer models or simulators. The method relies on emulating the short-time numerical flow map of the model. The flow map returns the solution of a dynamic system at an arbitrary time for a given initial condition. The prediction of the flow map is performed via a GP whose kernel is estimated using random Fourier features. This gives a distribution over the flow map such that each realisation… Expand

Random Features for Large-Scale Kernel Machines

- Computer Science, Mathematics
- NIPS
- 2007

Two sets of random features are explored, provided convergence bounds on their ability to approximate various radial basis kernels, and it is shown that in large-scale classification and regression tasks linear machine learning algorithms applied to these features outperform state-of-the-art large- scale kernel machines.

Emulating dynamic non-linear simulators using Gaussian processes

- Mathematics, Computer Science

The dynamic emulation of non-linear deterministic computer codes where the output is a time series, possibly multivariate, is examined and the measure of uncertainty provided by the method reflects the extent of predictability in each system. Expand

Efficiently sampling functions from Gaussian process posteriors

- Computer Science, Mathematics
- ICML
- 2020

This work identifies a decomposition of Gaussian processes that naturally lends itself to scalable sampling by separating out the prior from the data, and proposes an easy-to-use and general-purpose approach for fast posterior sampling, which seamlessly pairs with sparse approximations to afford scalability both during training and at test time.
