High-dimensional algorithms in weighted Hermite spaces of analytic functions

We consider integration and approximation of functions in a class of Hilbert spaces of analytic functions defined on the $\mathbb{R}^s$. The functions are characterized by the property that their Hermite coefficients decay exponentially fast. The function spaces are weighted by two weight sequences. For numerical integration, we use Gauss-Hermite quadrature rules and show that the errors of our algorithms decay exponentially fast. Furthermore, we consider $L_2$-approximation where the algorithms use information based on either arbitrary linear functionals or function evaluations. Also in the case of approximation we obtain exponential error convergence. For given $\varepsilon>0$, we study tractability in terms of $s$ and $\log\varepsilon^{-1}$ and give necessary and sufficient conditions under which we achieve exponential convergence with various types of tractability.
