Functional analysis is a branch of mathematical analysis whose core is vector spaces with some kind of limit-related structure (dot product, norm, topology, etc.), and linear functions defined on these spaces, It consists of studying these structures in a proper way. Respect your senses. Functional analysis has its historical roots in the study of functional spaces and the formulation of properties of transformations of functions, such as Fourier transforms transformations that define continuous or unitary operators, etc., between functional spaces. This point of view has proven particularly useful in the study of differential and integral equations.


Functional data analysis (FDA) refers to the statistical analysis of data samples consisting of random functions or surfaces, with each function represented as a sample element. The random functions in the sample are usually considered independent and correspond to smooth realizations of the underlying stochastic process. FDA’s methodology, in turn, provides a statistical approach for analyzing repetitively observed stochastic processes or data generated by such processes. The FDA believes that sample designs are very flexible, do not require stationary in the underlying process, and autoregressive moving average models or similar time-regressive models are irrelevant unless the elements of such models themselves work. It differs from the time series approach in that there is FDA also differs from multivariate analysis, the area of statistics dealing with finite-dimensional random vectors. This is because functional data are inherently infinite-dimensional and smoothness is often an important assumption. Smoothness has no meaning for multivariate data analysis, which is permutation-invariant, unlike FDA. Even sparse and irregularly observed longitudinal data can be analyzed using FDA methodology. Therefore, FDA can help analyze longitudinal and sparsely collected data. It is also an important method for analyzing time course, imagery, and tracking data. FDA’s approach and models are inherently non-parametric, allowing for flexible modeling. FDA statistical tools include smoothing. B. Based on series expansion, penalized spline, local polynomial smoothing, and functional principal component analysis. The difference between smoothing methods and FDA is that smoothing is typically used in situations where we want to obtain an estimate of a non-random object (here the object is a function or surface) from noisy observations, whereas FDA is a random It is intended to analyze a sample of objects of interest. An object that can be assumed to be completely noise-free or sparsely observed. Between these extremes, there are many interesting scenarios. FDA is a collection of statistical methods used to answer questions such as “What is the main way curve differs from script to script?” In fact, most of the questions and problems associated with ordinary multivariate data analyzed by statistical packages such as SAS and SPSS have corresponding functions. However, what is unique about functional data is that the curve rate of change or derivative information is also available [1-4].


Since these curves are inherently smooth, we can use the slope, curvature, and other exposed properties to use this information in many useful ways. For example, in our high school physics, we know that force = mass x acceleration. This suggests looking at acceleration, or his second derivative of pen position, as a function of time. What we can see in the acceleration vector magnitude diagram is that the acceleration reaches almost 10 meters/second/second. Great energy! Equally noteworthy is that these acceleration records remain stable from trial to trial. Also note that if the acceleration magnitude is close to zero, both X and Y acceleration must be zero at the same time.
