OC1: Oblique Classifier 1
OC1 (Oblique Classifier 1) is a multivariate decision tree induction
system designed for applications where the instances have numeric
feature values. OC1 builds decision trees that contain linear
combinations of one or more attributes at each internal node; these
trees then partition the space of examples with both oblique and
axis-parallel hyperplanes. OC1 has been used for classification of
data from several real world domains, such as astronomy and cancer
diagnosis. A technical description of the algorithm can be found in
the AAAI-93 paper by Sreerama K. Murthy, Simon Kasif, Steven Salzberg
and Richard Beigel. A postscript version of this paper is included in
This package is not being included on the CD-ROM at the request of
