We develop a proximity function between an individual and a population from a distance between multivariate observations. We study some properties of this construction and apply it to a distance{based discrimination rule, which contains the classic linear discriminant function as a particular case. Additionally, this rule can be used advantageously for categorical or mixed variables, or in problems where a probabilistic model is not well determined. This approach is illustrated and compared… CONTINUE READING
