Linear discrimination with equicorrelated training vectors


  • Leiva, Ricardo


Fisher's linear discrimination rule requires uncorrelated training vectors. In this paper a linear discrimination method is developed to be used when the training vectors are equicorrelated. Also, maximum likelihood ratio tests are proposed to decide whether the training samples are uncorrelated or equicorrelated.
