Financial prediction using non linear classification techniques

Albanis, G.T. (2001). Financial prediction using non linear classification techniques. (Unpublished Doctoral thesis, City University London)


In this thesis, we explore the ability of statistical classification methods to predict financial events in the bond and stock markets. Our classification methods include conventional Linear Dicriminant Analysis (LDA), and a number of less familiar non-linear techniques such as Probabilistic Neural Network (PNN), Learning Vector Quanization (LVQ), Oblique Classifer (OCI), and Ripper Rule Induction (RRI).
