sda: Shrinkage Discriminant Analysis and CAT Score Variable Selection

Provides an efficient framework for high-dimensional linear and diagonal discriminant analysis with variable selection. The classifier is trained using James-Stein-type shrinkage estimators and predictor variables are ranked using correlation-adjusted t-scores (CAT scores). Variable selection error is controlled using false non-discovery rates or higher criticism.
