# Abstract:

Let theta,X be a 1,2,...,s x R to the d power-valued random vector and theta sub 1, x sub 1,...,theta sub n, x sub n be iid. samples drawn from theta,X. The so-called discrimination problem is to find a function of X, usually depending upon theta sub n, x sub n,...,theta sub, x sub n, which is used to predict the value of theta. One of the most frequently used approaches is the nearest neighbor discrimination rule. Keywords populationmathematics and random variables.
