Code (Matlab/C++ Mex) for the following MI based feature selection approaches:
- Maximum relevance (maxRel)
- Minimum redundancy maximum relevance (MRMR)
- Minimum redundancy (minRed)
- Quadratic programming feature selection (QPFS)
- Mutual information quotient (MIQ)
- Maximum relevance minimum total redundancy (MRMTR) or extended MRMR (EMRMR)
- Spectral relaxation global Conditional Mutual Information (SPEC_CMI)
- Conditional mutual information minimization (CMIM)
- Conditional Infomax Feature Extraction (CIFE)
