A Priori L 2-Error Estimates for Approximations of Functions on Compact Manifolds

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


Given a C2-function f on a compact riemannian manifold (X, g) we give a set of frequencies L = Lf (ε) depending on a small parameter ε > 0 such that the relative L2-error(Formula presented.) is bounded above by ε, where fL denotes the L-partial sum of the Fourier series f with respect to an orthonormal basis of L2(X) constituted by eigenfunctions of the Laplacian operator Δ associated to the metric g.
