• Discriminant analysis assumes the two samples or populations being compared have the same covariance matrix \Sigma but distinct mean vectors \mu_1 and \mu_2 with p variables. (r-bloggers.com)
  • Since the resulting test statistic is significant at the 0.10 level, the within-group covariance matrices are used to derive the quadratic discriminant criterion. (sas.com)
  • Since the Chi-Square value is significant at the 0.1 level, the within covariance matrices will be used in the discriminant function. (sas.com)
  • However, there is little systematic guidance associated with these methods for solving important practical questions that arise in cluster analysis, such as \How many clusters are there? (psu.edu)
  • For any specific sample and exploratory or confirmatory hypothesis, optimal discriminant analysis (ODA) identifies the statistical model that yields maximum predictive accuracy, assesses the exact Type I error rate, and evaluates potential cross-generalizability. (wikipedia.org)
  • PCA on the other hand does not take into account any difference in class, and factor analysis builds the feature combinations based on differences rather than similarities. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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. (wikipedia.org)
