Bayes Classifier for given normal densities
W = NBAYESC(U,G)
Computation of the Bayes normal classifier between a set of classes. The means, labels and priors are defined by the dataset U of the size [C x K]. The covariance matrices are stored in a matrix G of the size [K x K x C], where K and C correspond to the dimensionality and the number of classes, respectively.
If C is 1, then G is treated as the common covariance matrix, yielding a linear solution. For G = I, the nearest mean solution is obtained.
This routine gives the exact solution for the given parameters, while the trainable classifiers QDC and LDC give approximate solutions, based on the parameter estimates from a training set. For a given dataset, U and G can be computed by MEANCOV.
[U,G] = MEANCOV(GENDATB(25));
