### How to find orthogonal projection of a d-dimensional point, d>2 on Fisher's discriminant?

We know that the number of Fisher's discriminant to find for classifying data in given dimension d into output classes K, is min(K-1,d) Using the iris dataset as an example, we know that d=4 (petal ...

### FIsher's LSD test is appropriate for restricted mean comparisons

Suppose that we perform two way ANOVA with interactions, with factors $A$ and $B$ with three level each $A_{1},A_{2},A_{3}$ and $B_{1},B_{2},B_{3}$. We know that Fisher's LSD test is used for ...

### Can Fisher's LSD fail to identify difference when the overall ANOVA test rejects?

I understand that Fisher's LSD test is used as a post hoc analysis if the ANOVA test rejects the null hypothesis All the means $X_1, X_2,.. X_n$ taken from various samples are equal. Also, given ...

### Post Hoc test: Fisher LSD or pairwise two sample t.tests

A Fisher LSD test is basically a series of pairwise t-test except that the pooled variance is computed on all groups (and therefore does not vary from one comparison to another) while the normal t-...

### Biochemistry table interpretation help!

I have a table that uses the Fisher LSD and has significance "in each column". I'm having trouble interpreting it. Is the significance just for that individual column or can they compare to other ...

### Reject $H_0: \mu_1 = \mu_2 = \mu_3$ but not $H_0: \mu_1 = \mu_2, H_0: \mu_3 = \mu_2,$ or $H_0: \mu_1 = \mu_3$?

Is it possible to reject $$H_0\!: \mu_1 = \mu_2 = \mu_3,$$ for example, with an F test in the context of an ANOVA table, but not reject any of the following: \begin{align} H_0\!: \mu_1 &= \mu_2 ...
