1 October 1991 Error probabilities of minimum-distance classifiers
Author Affiliations +
In the Gaussian case, the Bayes classifiers and the minimum distance classifiers are compared. The comparison is based on the error probability and on the bias introduced by the estimation of the law parameters. It is shown, both theoretically and by simulations, that even a suboptimal use of the minimum distance classifiers may be justified when the finite design sample size is small with regard to dimensionality. An application to signal classification is studied where the best modelization of the signal is not the best representation for classification.
