Abstract : In discrimination problems, one usually must consider many variates simultaneously. A nonparametric discrimination method, based on estimating the probability densities of two populations is now available and appears generally applicable to discrimination problems, based on the results of extensive experiments. The nonparametric method may also be combined with Gamba's learning without teacher or classification procedure to obtain a new classification technique which considers all variates simultaneously.
