Paper Abstract

Emperical Bayes classification rules are derived for minefield detection. Laplace approximations for the likelihood function and for the posterior density are used to construct approximate Bayes rules for classifying each unit or region as belonging to one of the two possible types, indicating the presence or absence of mines. Approximate maximum likelihood estimation is proposed assuming that repeated observations are available. An application to a multivariate Poisson log normal model is discussed briefly.
