Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

We show that the saturation order of piecewise constant approximation in Lp norm on convex partitions with N cells is N−2/(d+1), where d is the number of variables. This order is achieved for any on a partition obtained by a simple algorithm involving an anisotropic subdivision of a uniform partition. This improves considerably the approximation order N−1/d achievable on isotropic partitions. In addition we show that the saturation order of piecewise linear approximation on convex partitions is N−2/d, the same as on isotropic partitions.
