**Linear discriminant analysis**— (LDA) and the related Fisher s linear discriminant are methods used in statistics, pattern recognition and machine learning to find a linear combination of features which characterize or separate two or more classes of objects or events. The… …62

**Linear interpolation**— is a method of curve fitting using linear polynomials. It is heavily employed in mathematics (particularly numerical analysis), and numerous applications including computer graphics. It is a simple form of interpolation. Lerp is a quasi acronym… …63

**Linear least squares**— is an important computational problem, that arises primarily in applications when it is desired to fit a linear mathematical model to measurements obtained from experiments. The goals of linear least squares are to extract predictions from the… …64

**Linear A and Linear B**— Linear forms of writing used by Aegean civilizations during the 2nd millennium BC. Examples of Linear A, a syllabary (a writing system in which one character represents a whole syllable) written from left to right, date from 1850 BC to 1400 BC.… …65

**Linear partial information**— (LPI) is a method of making decisions based on insufficient or fuzzy information. LPI was introduced in 1970 by Polish Swiss mathematician Edward Kofler (1911 2007) to simplify decision processes. Comparing to other methods the LPI fuzziness is… …66

**Linear Air**— is a private air charter and air taxi service that is headquartered just outside of Boston in Concord, Massachusetts, near their home base, Hanscom Airfield. In 2004, Linear Air began an operation focused on addressing demand between the large… …67

**Linear least squares/Proposed**— Linear least squares is an important computational problem, that arises primarily in applications when it is desired to fit a linear mathematical model to observations obtained from experiments. Mathematically, it can be stated as the problem of… …68

**Linear Flash**— is a PC card flash memory format now used primarily in Cisco routers. Linear Flash requires no battery support, unlike somewhat faster SRAM, and features read/write speeds much faster than similar, less expensive ATA type cards (which include… …69

**Linear differential equation**— Linear Lin e*ar (l[i^]n [ e]*[ e]r), a. [L. linearis, linearius, fr. linea line: cf. F. lin[ e]aire. See 3d {Line}.] 1. Of or pertaining to a line; consisting of lines; in a straight direction; lineal. [1913 Webster] 2. (Bot.) Like a line;… …70
