1 Scopus citations


In this article, a strategy for estimating the significance of control parameters of mapping procedures is suggested. It is based on cross-classification analysis using measures of association. The proposed strategy provides a method for the objective estimation of the significance of control parameters, as opposed to the estimation by experience that is typically used. In a companion paper an application of the proposed method for evaluating the significance of the control parameters of a nonparametric linear mapping procedure is described. It demonstrates the effectiveness of the method.
