Reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces are elucidated without assuming prior
familiarity with Hilbert spaces. Compared with extant pedagogic material,
greater care is placed on motivating the definition of reproducing kernel
Hilbert spaces and explaining when and why these spaces are efficacious. The
novel viewpoint is that reproducing kernel Hilbert space theory studies
extrinsic geometry, associating with each geometric configuration a canonical
overdetermined coordinate system. This coordinate system varies continuously
with changing geometric configurations, making it well-suited for studying
problems whose solutions also vary continuously with changing geometry. This
primer can also serve as an introduction to infinite-dimensional linear algebra
because reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces have more properties in common with
Euclidean spaces than do more general Hilbert spaces.
