Is that correct ? Can you please show how to compute L and P using Fishers' DA as described above?Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-37324607.post-11886585138850967682017-09-13T23:25:15.118-04:002017-09-13T23:25:15.118-04:00hi Will, thanks a lot for the post.

I have a data set 320 by 75 and I am predicting some certain states using random forest, so the data set serves as input to random forest.<br /><br />Does LDA work well for reducing feature dimension in regression task? According to what i have read so far, it seems to me like it is only good for classification.<br /><br />Meanwhile i got the following result when i implemented dimension reduction: > In LDA (line 76) <br />Warning: Matrix is singular, close to<br />singular or badly scaled. Results may<br />be inaccurate. RCOND = NaN.

Assuming that the number of classes is less than the number of predictor variables, then the set of discriminant functions is a reduced set of data.<br /><br />Of course, as with PCA, all of the original predictor variables will still be needed, but any downstream analysis will have less variables to deal with.Will Dwinnellhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03379859054257561952noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-37324607.post-79228096679183859192012-01-04T05:56:42.505-05:002012-01-04T05:56:42.505-05:00It's probably a stupid question, but is it pos...It's probably a stupid question, but is it possible to do dimension reduction with this code, and if it is, I would like to know how that would work.<br />Thank you.wirth6https://www.blogger.com/profile/05801819648339418355noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-37324607.post-48084400546250512042011-06-17T21:02:00.255-04:002011-06-17T21:02:00.255-04:00shreyas,

I expect that you'll need to either select a much smaller number of inputs from this list or reduce them some other way (as by PCA).Will Dwinnellhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03379859054257561952noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-37324607.post-31867105661844998152011-06-17T11:38:51.310-04:002011-06-17T11:38:51.310-04:00Can you help me out in classification, I have 123 ...Can you help me out in classification, I have 123 subjects and have a 16384 dimension column vector for each, I have been able to use PCA for projecting data in Eigen space and doing the recognition.But I am confused with how to do it with LDA, as in things appear to be hazy.shreyashttps://www.blogger.com/profile/16515520556179175270noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-37324607.post-50313031416539026652011-04-26T22:32:30.746-04:002011-04-26T22:32:30.746-04:00Hi Mr Will,
