A RADAR-SHAPED STATISTIC FOR TESTING AND VISUALIZING UNIFORMITY PROPERTIES IN COMPUTER EXPERIMENTS

Abstract : In the study of computer codes, filling space as uniformly as possible is important to describe the complexity of the investigated phenomenon. However, this property is not conserved by reducing the dimension. Some numeric experiment designs are conceived in this sense as Latin hypercubes or orthogonal arrays, but they consider only the projections onto the axes or the coordinate planes. In this article we introduce a statistic which allows studying the good distribution of points according to all 1-dimensional projections. By angularly scanning the domain, we obtain a radar type representation, allowing the uniformity defects of a design to be identified with respect to its projections onto straight lines. The advantages of this new tool are demonstrated on usual examples of space-filling designs (SFD) and a global statistic independent of the angle of rotation is studied.
