This paper explores the concept of reparametrization invariant norm (RPI-norm) for $C^1$ functions that vanish at $-infty$ and whose derivative has compact support, such as $C^1_c$ functions.

Abstract

This paper explores the concept of reparametrization invariant norm (RPI-norm) for $C^1$ functions that vanish at $-infty$ and whose derivative has compact support, such as $C^1_c$ functions. An RPI-norm is any norm invariant under composition with orientation-preserving diffeomorphisms. The $L_infty$-norm and the total variation norm are well known instances of RPI-norms. We prove the existence of an infinite family of RPI-norms, called standard RPI-norms, for which we exhibit both an integral and a discrete characterization. Our main result states that for every piecewise monotone function $p$ in $C^1_c(R)$ the standard RPI-norms of $p$ allow us to compute the value of any other RPI-norm of $p$. This is proved using the standard RPI-norms to reconstruct the function $p$ up to reparametrization, sign and an arbitrarily small error with respect to the total variation norm.
