Abstract
Distance measures of distributions are often used to estimate upper and lower bounds on the probabilities of misclassification. Sharp lower and upper bounds are of great importance for feature selection, that means for classification oriented feature interpretation. MATUSITA affinity/6/ gives sharp upper bounds, the divergence /4/ lower bounds on the probabilities of misclassification. This paper discusses the properties of these two distance measures. Other measure are compared at length in /9/.
