We consider the problem of stochastic optimization with nonlinear constraints, where the decision variable is not vector-valued but instead a function belonging to a reproducing Kernel Hilbert Space (RKHS). Currently, there exist solutions to only special cases of this problem. To solve this constrained problem with kernels, we first generalize the Representer Theorem to a class of saddle-point problems defined over RKHS. Then, we develop a primal-dual method which that executes alternating projected primal/dual stochastic gradient descent/ascent on the dual-augmented Lagrangian of the problem. The primal projection sets are low-dimensional subspaces of the ambient function space, which are greedily constructed using matching pursuit. By tuning the projection-induced error to the algorithm step-size, we are able to establish mean convergence in both primal objective sub-optimality and constraint violation, to respective
