## AbstractIn Functional Data Analysis (FDA) multivariate data are considered as sampled functions. We propose a non-supervised method for finding a good function basis that is built on the data set. The basis consists of a set of Gaussian kernels that are optimized for an accurate fitting. The proposed methodology is experimented with two spectrometric data sets. The obtained weights are further scaled using a Delta Test (DT) to improve the prediction performance. Least Squares Support Vector Machine (LS-SVM) model is used for estimation.
