In this paper, the problem of an optimal transformation of the input space for function approximation problems is ddressed. The transformation is defined determining the Mahalanobis matrix that minimizes the variance of noise. To compute variance of the noise, a nonparametric estimator called the Delta Test paradigm is used. The proposed approach is illlustrated on two different benchmarks.
