A family of multivariate representations is presented to capture the input-output relationships of physical systems with many input variables. The high-dimensional model representations (HDMR) are based on the ansatz that for most physical systems, only relatively low order correlations of the input variables will have an impact on the output. Application of the HDMR tools can dramatically reduce the computational effort in representing the input-output relationships of a physical system. Two types of HDMR's are presented in this paper: ANOVA-HDMR is the same as the analysis of variance (ANOVA) decomposition used in statistics. Another cut-HDMR will be shown to be computationally more efficient than the ANOVA decomposition. Three test examples are given to illustrate the high computational efficiency of cut-HDMR.
