Radial basis function (RBF) is a basis function suitable for scattered data interpolation and high dimensional function interpolation, wherein the independent shape parameters have a direct impact on the accuracy of calculation results. Research in this field is mostly concerned with the shape parameter selection strategy based on the premise of global distribution or block regional distribution. In this paper, a shape parameter selection strategy is proposed, which is used for the local RBF collocation method (LRBF) for solving partial differential equations. It overcomes many limitations of the traditional methods applied to LRBF. In this strategy, a set of twin matrices similar to the interpolation matrix are constructed to evaluate the error of the model. In addition, the penalty term contained in the twin matrix is used to relax the influence of the far end region on the target node. Since the objective problem is nonlinear, a particle swarm optimization algorithm (PSO) is employed to minimize the training objective and adjust the shape parameters of the basis function at each iteration. Extensive numerical results showed the effectiveness of the error estimation strategy, by providing a good shape parameter and better solution accuracy. At the end of the paper, the generality of the shape parameter optimization framework based on this strategy is discussed through three examples.


This is a 2D adaptive shape parameter optimization framework, and the PSO module contained inside will realize the generation of adaptive shape parameters. This framework can be used in any local collocation method including RBF. Changes in local basis functions require modifications to the local twin matrix generation process according to ref. Readers can get the code through the link.
