Feature extraction and selection are key factors in model reduction, classification and pattern recognition problems. This is especially important for input data with large dimensions such as brain recording or multiview images, where appropriate feature extraction is a prerequisite to classification. To ensure that the reduced dataset contains maximum information about input data we propose algorithms for feature extraction and classification. This is achieved based on orthogonal or nonnegative tensor (multi-array) decompositions, and higher order (multilinear) discriminant analysis (HODA), whereby input data are considered as tensors instead of more conventional vector or matrix representations. The developed algorithms are verified on benchmark datasets, using constraints imposed on tensors and/or factor matrices such as orthogonality and nonnegativity.
