Universal approximation of symmetric and anti-symmetric functions

Journal Article

We consider universal approximations of symmetric and anti-symmetric functions, which are important for applications in quantum physics, as well as other scientific and engineering computations. We give constructive approximations with explicit bounds on the number of parameters with respect to the dimension and the target accuracy $\epsilon$. While the approximation still suffers from curse of dimensionality, to the best of our knowledge, these are first results in the literature with explicit error bounds. Moreover, we also discuss neural network architecture that can be suitable for approximating symmetric and anti-symmetric functions.
