  Linear discriminant analysis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Discriminant analysis is also different from factor analysis in that it is not an interdependence technique : a distinction between independent variables and dependent variables (also called criterion variables) must be made.
The terms Fisher's linear discriminant and LDA are often used interchangeably, although Fisher's original article The Use of Multiple Measures in Taxonomic Problems (1936) actually describes a slightly different discriminant, which does not make some of the assumptions of LDA such as normally distributed classes or equal class covariances.
LDA and Fisher's discriminant can be extended for use in non-linear classification via the kernel trick.

Linear discriminant analysis (LDA) and the related Fisher's linear discriminant are to find the linear combination of features which best separate two or more classes of object or event.
LDA can be generalized to multiple discriminant analysis, where c becomes a categorical variable with N possible states, instead of only two.
The linear combinations obtained using Fisher's linear discriminant are referred to as Fisher faces, while those obtained using the related principal component analysis are called eigenfaces.

 Discriminant Function Analysis
Therefore, variable height allows us to discriminate between males and females with a better than chance probability: if a person is tall, then he is likely to be a male, if a person is short, then she is likely to be a female.
In the two-group case, discriminant function analysis can also be thought of as (and is analogous to) multiple regression (see Multiple Regression; the two-group discriminant analysis is also called Fisher linear discriminant analysis after Fisher, 1936; computationally all of these approaches are analogous).
In general Discriminant Analysis is a very useful tool (1) for detecting the variables that allow the researcher to discriminate between different (naturally occurring) groups, and (2) for classifying cases into different groups with a better than chance accuracy.

 Discriminant Analysis (DISCRAN)
The task of discriminant analysis is to find the best linear discriminant function(s) of a set of variables which reproduce(s), as far as it is possible, an a priori grouping of the cases considered.
Discriminant analysis on all cases together; cases are identified by the V1; 5 steps of analysis are requested; a priori groups are defined by the variable V111 which includes categories 1-6.
Repeat analysis described in the Example 1 using the subset of respondents having the value 1 on V5 as the basic sample and test the results on the respondents having the value 2 on V5.

 Linear Discriminant Analysis
Discriminant analysis can be used only for classification (i.e., with a categorical target variable), not for regression.
Linear discriminant analysis finds a linear transformation ("discriminant function") of the two predictors, X and Y, that yields a new set of transformed values that provides a more accurate discrimination than either predictor alone:
The fl line shows the optimal axis found by linear discriminant analysis that maximizes the separation between the groups when they are projected on the line.

 Classification Trees
In linear discriminant analysis the number of linear discriminant functions that can be extracted is the lesser of the number of predictor variables or the number of classes on the dependent variable minus one.
In the linear discriminant analysis, the raw canonical discriminant function coefficients for Longitude and Latitude on the (single) discriminant function are.122073 and -.633124, respectively, and hurricanes with higher longitude and lower latitude coordinates are classified as Trop.
The second basic step in classification tree analysis is to select the splits on the predictor variables which are used to predict membership in the classes of the dependent variables for the cases or objects in the analysis.

 Research Statement
Discriminant analysis has been studied in both pattern recognition and statistics for many years.
For example, the performance of LDA classifier was analysized using matrix perturbation theory [5].
Factor Analysis is generally referred to the statistical method to recover the underlying factors used to model the observations (Independent Component Analysis is the newest addition to this branch).

Each of the functions described in the previous section was a linear combination of the components of xt and used a specific set of weights in a parameter vector w.

 SSRN-Robust Linear Discriminant Analysis for Multiple Groups: Influence and Classification Efficiencies by Christophe ...
Linear discriminant analysis for multiple groups is typically carried out using Fisher’s method.
Since sample averages and covariance matrices are not robust, it is proposed to use robust estimators of location and covariance instead, yielding a robust version of Fisher’s method.
In this paper expressions are derived for the influence that an observation in the training set has on the error rate of the Fisher method for multiple linear discriminant analysis.

 Discriminant Analysis by Locally Linear Transformations   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
We present a novel learning method for the discriminant analysis which classifies a non-linear structure.
Several local linear transformations are considered to yield that the locally transformed classes have maximized covariance of between-class and minimized covariance of within-class.
The method is much more benefited in computational efficiency compared to the previous non-linear discriminant analysis based on kernel approach.

 Generalized Linear Discriminant Analysis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
The conventional linear discriminant analysis (LDA) requires that the within-class scatter matrix Sw be nonsingular.
To solve the problem, we propose the generalized linear discriminant analysis (GLDA) that is a general, direct, and complete solution to optimize the modified Fisher's criterion.
Different from the conventional LDA, GLDA does not assume the nonsingularity of Sw, and thus solves the small sample size problem.

That is, the response is the grouping factor and the right hand side specifies the (non-factor) discriminators.

Thus the first few linear discriminants emphasize the differences between groups with the weights given by the prior, which may differ from their prevalence in the dataset.

 RR-1793 : Shrinkage parameter for modified linear discriminant analysis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Abstract : Linear discriminant analysis is considered in the small-sample, high-dimension- al setting.
First, we show that the variance of the modified linear discriminant functions is less than those of the classical linear discriminant function.
Our procedures are based-one on the cross-validated misclassification risk and one on the cross-validated generalized discriminant function as defined in Rayens and Greene (1991).
