# Equivariant maps from invariant functions

In equivariant machine learning the idea is to restrict the learning to a hypothesis class where all the functions are equivariant with respect to some group action. Irreducible representations or invariant theory are typically used to parameterize the space of such functions. In this note, we explicate a general procedure, attributed to Malgrange, to express all polynomial maps between linear spaces that are equivariant with respect to the action of a group G, given a characterization of the invariant polynomials on a bigger space. The method also parametrizes smooth equivariant maps in the case that G is a compact Lie group.
