Structure-preserving Sparse Identification of Nonlinear Dynamics for Data-driven Modeling
Proceedings of Mathematical and Scientific Machine Learning, PMLR 190:65-80, 2022.
Discovery of dynamical systems from data forms the foundation for data-driven modeling and recently, structure-preserving geometric perspectives have been shown to provide improved forecasting, stability, and physical realizability guarantees. We present here a unification of the Sparse Identification of Nonlinear Dynamics (SINDy) formalism with neural ordinary differential equations. The resulting framework allows learning of both “black-box” dynamics and learning of structure preserving bracket formalisms for both reversible and irreversible dynamics. We present a suite of benchmarks demonstrating effectiveness and structure preservation, including for chaotic systems.
