ABSTRACT

In this paper we address the problem of identifying a continuous nonlinear model from a set of discrete observations. The goal is to build a compact and accurate model of an underlying process, which is interpretable by the user, and can be also used for prediction purposes. Hinging hyper plane models are well suited to represent continuous piecewise linear models, but the hinge finding algorithm is guaranteed to converge only in local optima, and hence heavily depends on the initialization. We employ the principal Hessian direction to incorporate the geometrical information of the regression surface in the hinge finding process and can thus avoid the several random initializations proposed in the literature.
