Effects of Numerical Errors against Sample Mahalanobis Distances
Yasuyuki Kobayashi (Teikyo Univ.) IBISML2014-90
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) I have studied the detail conditions that the numerical errors of sample Mahalanobis distances (T^2=y^' S^(-1) y) of the sample covariance matrix S can be suppressed and have found the two following conditions by the theoretical analysis and numerical experiments. 1) √(l_min ) as the square root of the minimum eigenvalue of the matrix S should be larger than ε_A as the maximum numerical error of the eigenvalues, and 2) ||Δy||/||y|| as the relative numerical error of the vector y, should be smaller than √(l_min/l_max) , the inverse square root of the condition number of the matrix S. As a result, if the significant figure number of the real variables storing the vector y is larger than the significant figure number of the vector y itself, the significant figure number of the vector y itself determines the upper bound of the condition number of the matrix S.
