On misclassication probabilities of linear and quadratic classiers

  • Olusola Samuel Makinde

Abstract

We study the theoretical misclassication probability of linear and quadratic classiers and examine the performance of these classiers under distributional variations in theory and using simulation. We derive expression for Bayes errors for some competing distributions from the same family under location shift.

Keywords: Misclassication probability; linear classier; quadratic classier; Bayes risk.
