Regularity, continuity and approximation of isotropic Gaussian random fields on compact two-point homogeneous spaces
Journal article, 2020

Gaussian random fields defined over compact two-point homogeneous spaces are considered and Sobolev regularity and Hölder continuity are explored through spectral representations. It is shown how spectral properties of the covariance function associated to a given Gaussian random field are crucial to determine such regularities and geometric properties. Furthermore, fast approximations of random fields on compact two-point homogeneous spaces are derived by truncation of the series expansion, and a suitable bound for the error involved in such an approximation is provided.
