Priors on functions of a single variable are commonly constructed using sta- tionary Gaussian processes with smooth sample paths (e.g. [1], [5], [10], [16])). A popular example is the so-called squared-exponential process, i.e. the centered. Gaussian

Oct 14, 2012 - Abstract. Changes in population size influence genetic diversity of the population and, as a result, leave a signature of these changes in individual genomes in the population. We are interested in the inverse problem of reconstructing

Abstract—Kernel methods have revolutionized the fields of pattern recognition and machine learning. Their success, however, critically depends on the choice of kernel parameters. Using. Gaussian process (GP) classification as a working example, thi
