.MinCovDet¶
- class sklearn.covariance.MinCovDet(*, store_precision=True, assume_centered=False, support_fraction=None, random_state=None)[source]¶
Minimum Covariance Determinant (MCD): robust estimator of covariance.
The Minimum Covariance Determinant covariance estimator is to be applied on Gaussian-distributed data, but could still be relevant on data drawn from a unimodal, symmetric distribution. It is not meant to be used with multi-modal data (the algorithm used to fit a MinCovDet object is likely to fail in such a case). One should consider projection pursuit methods to deal with multi-modal datasets.
Read more in the User Guide.
- Parameters:
- store_precisionbool, default=True
Specify if the estimated precision is stored.
- assume_centeredbool, default=False
If True, the support of the robust location and the covariance estimates is computed, and a covariance estimate is recomputed from it, without centering the data. Useful to work with data whose mean is significantly equal to zero but is not exactly zero. If False, the robust location and covariance are directly computed with the FastMCD algorithm without additional treatment.
- support_fractionfloat, default=None
The proportion of points to be included in the support of the raw MCD estimate. Default is None, which implies that the minimum value of support_fraction will be used within the algorithm:
(n_samples + n_features + 1) / 2 * n_samples
. The parameter must be in the range (0, 1].- random_stateint, RandomState instance or None, default=None
Determines the pseudo random number generator for shuffling the data. Pass an int for reproducible results across multiple function calls. See Glossary.
