The decision tree classifier: Design and potential

Philip H. Swain, Hans Hauska
1977 Geoscience Electronics, IEEE Transactions on  
The basic concepts of a multi-stage classification strategy, the decision tree classifier, are presented. The two main methods to design decision trees are presented and discussed along with some experimental results. An attempt is made to describe an Applicable Logic for the design of decision trees. Advantages and disadvantages of the both design approaches are discussed.
