In statistics and signal processing, the method of empirical orthogonal functions is a decomposition of a signal or data set in terms of orthogonal basis functions which are determined from the data.
The ith basis function is chosen to be orthogonal to the basis functions from the first through i − 1, and to minimize the residual variance.
The method of empirical orthogonal functions is similar in spirit to harmonic analysis, but harmonic analysis typically uses predetermined orthogonal functions, for example, sine and cosine functions at fixed frequencies.

Orthogonal rational functions (ORF) generalize the theory of polynomials orthogonal with respect to a positive measure on the real line or the complex unit circle.
Hereby orthogonality was considered with respect to the Lebesgue measure (weight equal to 1) and only one real or a complex conjugate pair of repeated poles is used.
At first sight, these applications seem to be quite different, but, although they have each their own specific problems, the fundamental properties of the orthogonal functions involved that have to be investigated are the same: an optimal choice of the poles, properties of the zeros, convergence theory.

A pulse function from a system of orthogonal or substantially orthogonal pulse functions is used, which, by mutual agreement, are recognized by both the central unit and the subscriber stations.
Transmitting the orthogonal pulse functions is effected during the total duration of the authorized time slot and is no longer limited to the exceptional case in which a fixed character is transmitted in one of the different call slots.
Such orthogonal pulse functions and their evaluation are known (NTG, Signalverarbeitung, Proceedings of the symposium held in Erlangen from Apr. 4-6, 1973 under the same name, published by W. Schussler, a paper on signal theory by Hans Dieter Luke).

Two functions are said to be orthogonal over a given interval if integrating their product (over that interval) equals zero.
Now, the zero function will be orthogonal to all functions in exactly the same sense that the zero vector is orthogonal to all vectors; the dot product is zero because the length is zero, but it really says nothing about the direction of the other vector, since the zero vector has no direction.
Likewise, the zero function is trivially orthogonal to all functions just because it has no "direction".

 Abstract: Symmetric multivariate orthogonal refinable functions   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
In this paper, we shall investigate the symmetry property of a multivariate orthogonal $M$-refinable function with a general dilation matrix $M$.
For an orthogonal $M$-refinable function $\phi$ such that $\phi$ is symmetric about a point (centro-symmetric) and $\phi$ provides approximation order $k$, we show that $\phi$ must be an orthogonal $M$-refinable function that generates a generalized coiflet of order $k$.
Next, we show that there does not exist a real-valued compactly supported orthogonal $2 I_s$-refinable function $\phi$ in any dimension such that $\phi$ is symmetric about a point and $\phi$ generates a classical coiflet.

The proof substitutes the sum with a sum of independent random variables that could be in a certain sense considered as first order functional approximations to the multivariate functions.

Orthogonal functions are a list of functions w0(x), w1(x), w2(x),...wN(x) with the property that an integration over the product of any two of them wi(x)*wj(x) is non-zero only when i=j.
Orthogonal functions are useful because it is easy to invert a linear sum of them in a series using this property.
