Comparative study on multivariate outlier detection methods in sesame (Sesamum indicum L.)
Outlier detection in multivariate dataset is not quite trivial when compared to univariate. The tediousness in multivariate outlier is due to presence of swamping and masking effect which portrays an ideal sample point as outlier instead of true one. To overcome all this problems, robust techniques can be applied instead of classical outlier detection methods because the latter fails to find out the correct outlier. This paper enumerates various techniques like Mahalanobis, Cook’s, Leverage points, DFFITS, minimum volume ellipsoid (MVE) and minimum covariance determinant (MCD) for detection of outliers or anomalies in multivariate space and best will be identified. Researchers can use that technique to identify outliers before going for analysis, as this will assist in significant results.
