12.8 Exponentiated quadratic covariance functions

These covariance functions have been replaced by those described in:

With magnitude \(\alpha\) and length scale \(l\), the exponentiated quadratic kernel is:

\[ k(x_i, x_j) = \alpha^2 \exp \left(-\dfrac{1}{2\rho^2} \sum_{d=1}^D (x_{i,d} - x_{j,d})^2 \right) \]
