class revrand.basis_functions.RadialBasis(centres, lenscale=Parameter(value=1.0, bounds=Positive(upper=None), shape=()), regularizer=None)

Radial basis class.

\[\phi(\mathbf{X}) = \exp \left( -\frac{\|\mathbf{X} - \mathbf{C}\|^2} {2 l^2} \right)\]

Where \(\mathbf{C}\) are radial basis centres, and \(l\) is a length scale.

  • centres (ndarray) – array of shape (Dxd) where D is the number of centres for the radial bases, and d is the dimensionality of X.
  • lenscale (Parameter, optional) – A scalar or vector of shape (1,) or (d,) Parameter to bound and initialise the length scales for optimization. If this is shape (d,), ARD length scales will be expected, otherwise an isotropic lenscale is learned.
  • regularizer (None, Parameter, optional) – The (initial) value of the regularizer/prior variance to apply to the regression weights of this basis function. The Parameter object must have a scalar value. If it is not set, it will take on a default value of Parameter(gamma(1.), Positive()).


This will have relevance vector machine-like behaviour with uncertainty.
