Bayesian Model Selection Methods for Mutual and Symmetric $k$-Nearest Neighbor Classification

The k-nearest neighbor classification method ( kNNC) is one of the simplest nonparametric classification met hods. The mutual k-NN classification method (MkNNC) is a variant of k-NNC based on mutual neighborship. We propose another variant of k-NNC, the symmetric k-NN classification method (SkNNC) based on both mutual neighborship and one-sided neighborship… CONTINUE READING
