In this training set, the observations are identified as belonging to either population ITO or IT l • AS90~ ciated with @ach observation is a vector X of length p which is composed of observations on various symptoms or laboratory measurements which are to be used to calculate the probability of membership in ITi. A common model for p{TIil~) is that of the muleivariage logistic i.e.
