Relationship between classifier performance and distributional complexity for small samples
MetadataShow full item record
Given a limited number of samples for classification, several issues arise with respect to design, performance and analysis of classifiers. This is especially so in the case of microarray-based classification. In this paper, we use a complexity measure based mixture model to study classifier performance for small sample problems. The motivation behind such a study is to determine the conditions under which a certain class of classifiers is suitable for classification, subject to the constraint of a limited number of samples being available. Classifier study in terms of the VC dimension of a learning machine is also discussed.
