Unformatted text preview: Insight by Mathematics and Intuition for understanding Pattern Recognition Waleed A. Yousef Faculty of Computers and Information, Helwan University. May 8, 2010 Ch4. Linear Models for Classification Before modeling a linear model for classification, what is the best descision function? Back to Ch2. we find: ln f 1 ( X ) f 2 ( X ) G 1 ≷ G 2 ln π 2 L 21 π 1 L 12 h ( X ) G 1 ≷ G 2 th, (the loglikelihood ratio). If we know f 1 and f 2 the best thing one can do is to use them and estimate their parameters, and h ( X ) is the decision function that decides to which class X belongs, with the decision surface h ( X ) = th .
