Discriminant Analysis

Regularized linear and quadratic discriminant analysis

To interactively train a discriminant analysis model, use the Classification Learner app. For greater flexibility, train a discriminant analysis model using fitcdiscr in the command-line interface. After training, predict labels or estimate posterior probabilities by passing the model and predictor data to predict.
