class (version 7.3-18)

reduce.nn: Reduce Training Set for a k-NN Classifier

Description

Reduce training set for a k-NN classifier. Used after condense.

Usage

reduce.nn(train, ind, class)

Arguments

train

matrix for training set

ind

Initial list of members of the training set (from condense).

class

vector of classifications for test set

Value

Index vector of cases to be retained.

Details

All the members of the training set are tried in random order. Any which when dropped do not cause any members of the training set to be wrongly classified are dropped.
