Abstract
It has been an open question whether the sum of finitely many isotropic Gaussian kernels in n ≥ 2 dimensions can have more modes than kernels, until in 2003 Carreira-Perpiñán and Williams exhibited n +1 isotropic Gaussian kernels in ℝ n with n + 2 modes. We give a detailed analysis of this example, showing that it has exponentially many critical points and that the resilience of the extra mode grows like √n. In addition, we exhibit finite configurations of isotropic Gaussian kernels with superlinearly many modes.
