In this paper, we present counterarguments against the direct LDA algorithm (D-LDA), which was previously claimed to be equivalent to Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA). We show from Bayesian decision theory that D-LDA is actually a special case of LDA by directly taking the linear space of class means as the LDA solution. The pooled covariance estimate is completely ignored. Furthermore, we demonstrate that D-LDA is not equivalent to traditional subspace-based LDA in dealing with the Small… CONTINUE READING
