Masters Theses

Abstract

"This thesis is on a research problem to identify and classify Gaussian processes. It started with the detection of landmines and moved onto a generalization of the classification problem. The main part of the thesis deals with dimensionality reduction of the large dimension AR spectrums obtained for the landmines. It was demonstrated by earlier research work that many of the algorithms that work well for small dimension feature vectors are unable to duplicate the same classification results for the large dimension vectors. The algorithms for reduction of the feature vector dimension studied here are the Fisher's linear discriminant analysis and the Fisher's multiple discriminant analysis"--Abstract, page iii.
