Abstract:

A similarity transform method of providing parameterized representation of physical or engineering functions for use in retrieving the engineering or physical functions from data, comprising a obtaining samples of the functions from data, numerical simulations, or analytic models, b extracting generic function shape information from the samples, c embedding the function shape information in a parametric discrete grid-based function representation model forward model d fitting data with the forward model and e retrieving the function from the fitted forward model. The similarity transform method provides a framework for extracting generic function shape information, in the form of non-dimensional shape function, from data, numerical simulations, or analytic model. Thus, the present invention facilitates analysis of general characteristics of a physical or engineering variable, in terms of the dependence of the variable on other variables or parameters.
