A nonparametric discriminant analysis is discussed and used to compare two robust linear discriminant functions that are based on high breakdown point (of location and covariance matrix ) estimators. The major part of the paper deals with practical application of the available methods. The methods are compared on 10 simulated data sets. We concluded that the nonparametric procedure have the highest predictive power among other procedures we considered.
Key words: discriminant analysis (DA), MCD, MWCD, principal component analysis,projection pursuit, Principal component and Projection Pursuit(Nonparametric DA)
