Characterization of rankings generated by linear discriminant analysis


  • Kamiya, Hidehiko
  • Takemura, Akimichi


Pairwise linear discriminant analysis can be regarded as a process to generate rankings of the populations. But in general, not all rankings are generated. We give a characterization of generated rankings. We also derive some basic properties of this model.
