Usage
# S3 method for qda
predict(object, newdata, prior = object$prior,
method = c("plugin", "predictive", "debiased", "looCV"), …)
Arguments
 object

object of class
"qda"
 newdata

data frame of cases to be classified or, if
object
has a formula, a data frame with columns of the same names as the variables used. A vector will be interpreted as a row vector. If newdata is missing, an attempt will be made to retrieve the data used to fit theqda
object.  prior

The prior probabilities of the classes, by default the proportions in the
training set or what was set in the call to
qda
.  method

This determines how the parameter estimation is handled. With
"plugin"
(the default) the usual unbiased parameter estimates are used and assumed to be correct. With"debiased"
an unbiased estimator of the log posterior probabilities is used, and with"predictive"
the parameter estimates are integrated out using a vague prior. With"looCV"
the leaveoneout crossvalidation fits to the original dataset are computed and returned.  …

Details
This function is a method for the generic function
predict()
for class "qda"
.
It can be invoked by calling predict(x)
for an
object x
of the appropriate class, or directly by
calling predict.qda(x)
regardless of the
class of the object. Missing values in newdata
are handled by returning NA
if the
quadratic discriminants cannot be evaluated. If newdata
is omitted and
the na.action
of the fit omitted cases, these will be omitted on the
prediction.
