Ringnorm Benchmark Problem

Description

The inputs of the ringnorm problem are points from two Gaussian distributions. Class 1 is multivariate normal with mean 0 and covariance 4 times the identity matrix. Class 2 has unit covariance and mean (a,a,...,a), a=d^{-0.5}.

Usage

mlbench.ringnorm(n, d=20)

Arguments

n number of patterns to create
d dimension of the ringnorm problem

Value

Returns an object of class "mlbench.ringnorm" with components

x input values
classes factor vector of length n with target classes
