Ap1 ) is chosen to maximise the variance of the variable Y1 . In order to obtain a unique solution it is required that the weights are normalised, constraining the sum of their squares to be 1. Therefore, the first principal component is determined by the vector of weights a1 such that max Var(Y1 ) = max(a1 , Sa1 ), under the constraint a 1 a1 = 1, which normalises the vector. The solution of the previous problem is obtained using Lagrange multipliers. It can be shown that, in order to maximise the variance of Y1 , the weights can be chosen to be the eigenvector corresponding to the largest eigenvalue of 36 APPLIED DATA MINING FOR BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY the variance–covariance matrix S.

We will examine the Euclidean distance for quantitative variables, and some indexes of similarity for qualitative variables. 1 Euclidean distance Consider a data matrix containing only quantitative (or binary) variables. If x and y are rows from the data matrix then a function d(x, y) is said to be a distance between two observations if it satisfies the following properties: • • • • Non-negativity. d(x, y) ≥ 0, for all x and y. Identity. d(x, y) = 0 ⇔ x = y, for all x andy. Symmetry. d(x, y) = d(y, x), for all x and y.

1 Independence and association In order to develop indexes to describe the relationship between qualitative variables it is necessary to first introduce the concept of statistical independence. Two variables X and Y are said to be independent, for a sample of n observations, if ni1 niJ ni+ , ∀ i = 1, 2, . . , I, = ... = = n+1 n+J n or, equivalently, nIj n+j n1j = ... = = ,∀ n1+ nI + n j = 1, 2, . . , J. If this occurs it means that, with reference to the first equation, the (bivariate) joint analysis of the two variables X and Y does not given any additional knowledge about X than can be gained from the univariate analysis of the variable X; the same is true for the variable Y in the second equation.
