I need to learn how to compute the flux for sparse data.

I looked at the volumetric GPM data for precipitation and it does not look like a continuous function, rather it is sparse partitioned and distanced spread of regions of moisture.

So my previous work to compute the Laplacian might or might not apply.

I was wondering how one goes about mathematically computing the flux of sparse data.

thanx paul, I study this

`thanx paul, I study this`

Paul check out the NonlinearModelFit [ ] in Mathematica I think it is using the Gaussian process.

Dara, I am using these options for NonLinearModelFit :

Method -> "NMinimize"

Method -> "Differential Evolution"

You are a genius Paul.

Paul Mathematica's Differential Evolution is not parallelized, I want to write a version in C that is parallelized in GPU servers.

Dara, I still do not know if the Eureqa tool I occasionally use incorporates Differential Evolution, but it certainly does use all 8 of the CPU's when it is running.
