Two source code files of the mRMR (minimum-redundancy maximum-relevancy) feature selection method in (Peng et al, 2005 and Ding & Peng, 2005, 2003), whose better performance over the conventional top-ranking method has been demonstrated on a number of data sets in recent publications. This version uses mutual information as a proxy for computing relevance and redundancy among variables (features). Other variations such as using correlation or F-test or distances can be easily implemented within this framework, too.
