Multi-modal classification problems arise in many fields and form an important class of problems. The presence of disjoint areas for each class creates special problems for techniques that cannot partition each class into more than one region. Among the various techniques that have been applied with some success to multi-modal problems are decision tree(More)
Importance Although physician concerns about medical malpractice are substantial, national data are lacking on the rate of claims paid on behalf of US physicians by specialty. Objective To characterize paid malpractice claims by specialty. Design, Setting, and Participants A comprehensive analysis was conducted of all paid malpractice claims, with(More)
Among classification problems multi-modal problems form an important category. They naturally arise in many fields when a single class can occupy disjoint areas in the feature space. They are particularly hard to solve for traditional classification techniques. Decision tree Classifiers(DTCs) in principle are able to solve such problems by the recursive(More)
