condense: Condense training set for k-NN classifier

Description

Condense training set for k-NN classifier

Usage

condense(train, class, store, trace = TRUE)

Arguments

train

matrix for training set

class

vector of classifications for test set

store

initial store set. Default one randomly chosen element of the set.

trace

logical. Trace iterations?

Value

Index vector of cases to be retained (the final store set).

Details

The store set is used to 1-NN classify the rest, and misclassified patterns are added to the store set. The whole set is checked until no additions occur.
