Classifying microarray cancer datasets using nearest subspace classification

Michael C. Cohen, Kuldip K. Paliwal
In this paper we implement and test the recently described nearest subspace classifier on a range of microarray cancer datasets. Its classification accuracy is tested against nearest neighbor and nearest centroid algorithms, and is shown to give a significant improvement. This classification system uses class-dependent PCA to construct a subspace for each class. Test vectors are assigned the class label of the nearest subspace, which is defined as the minimum reconstruction error across all
