# Name of classification algorithm based on gaussian distributions estimated from data?

Can you help me find the name of this classification method:

Assume we have $$n$$ dimensional feature vectors we want to classify in two classes.

1. We model the classes as two $$n$$ dimensional gaussian distributions estimated from the data.
2. We classify a new vector to the class that maximizes the PDF (probability density function) at that point.
• Two component Gaussian mixture model?
