Abstract

We present error bounds for the interpolation with anisotropically transformed radial basis functions for both a function and its partial derivatives. The bounds rely on a growth function and do not contain unknown constants. For polyharmonic basic functions in , we show that the anisotropic estimates predict a significant improvement of the approximation error if both the target function and the placement of the centers are anisotropic, and this improvement is confirmed numerically.
