pyRSM is an object oriented framework to create and use response surface approximations or metamodels. Such approximations are useful in different fields and are particularly useful in design and/or optimization were they can be used in liue of expensive function analyzes.

Design of Experiments (DOE)

Different design of experiments (DOE) are included in the framework to sample a given design space

  • Halton sequences

  • Hammersley sequences

  • Latin Square sampling

  • Monte Carlo sampling

  • Random sampling

  • Taguchi sampling


DOEs sampling on example 2D design space

Response Surfaces Methods

Different state of art response surface methodologies (RSM) are currently available in the framework.

  • Radial Basis Functions (RBF)

  • Multi Adaptive Regression Splines (MARS)

  • Least-Squares Support Vector Machine (LSSVM)

  • Gaussian Process Regression (GPR or Kriging)


Example RBF response prediction of 1D function


Example LSSVM response prediction of 1D function with noise
