Fondacio was established in France under the name of Christian Formation Community, in the wake of Catholic Charismatic Renewal and at the initiative of Jean-Michel Rousseau, a young married layman. It was originally intended to provide Christian instruction for young adults, but from , with the admission of people with social responsibilities and lay persons engaged in parish activities, it decided to broaden its sphere of activity and to become international in character.
It was in those years that the new name was adopted, Foundations for a New World. In , following a serious internal crisis, Rousseau and some of the membership quit the association. The Foundations were given recognition as an association of diocesan right by the Bishop of Versailles in , the Archbishop of Santiago de Chile in , and by the Archbishop of Brussels in Fondacio is a Catholic association with an ecumenical dimension, bringing together members of the laity, married and unmarried, who are committed to a pathway of personal growth and conversion giving pride of place to their relationship with God, human and spiritual development, and community life.
Fondacio is headed by a President elected by the International Congress , which convenes the delegates of the countries in which the association is present every four years, to lay down its guidelines for action. The decisions of the Congress are implemented by an International Council , which expresses the unity of all the component parts of Fondacio.
The national branches are autonomous in the way they operate and in their missionary choices, and are each headed by a Council and by a Pastoral Assembly. Fondacio performs its specific vocation of announcing the Good News through evangelisation projects and initiatives to support development in parts of the world afflicted by poverty, where the association has created activities to restore more humane living conditions and the dignity of children of God to the poor: homes for reintegration into society, dispensaries, schools, and vocational training centres.
Marthe Robin, who had been ill from the age of 16, offered herself to the will of God in total abandon, entrusting herself to Mary. In the spirit of the Beatitudes they also place their material, intellectual and spiritual goods in common. Among the formation activities, spiritual retreats open to all play an important part, as a synthesis of Christian life and faith in fidelity to the Word of God and the Magisterium of the Church.
Retreats, animated by the laity, are led by the priest responsible for the Foyer. The priest-in-charge is also responsible for all the Foyers worldwide. The members of all the Foyers meet every year in a family spirit to share their experiences and jointly draft projects for expanding the association. The General Assembly is convened every five years by the priest in charge of the Foyer-Centre, elects one half of the members of the Central Council and decides on the most important spiritual and apostolic guidelines of the association.
FCF was established at Bayonne, France, by a group of women of 20 nationalities who had shared a long experience of the Jesus Caritas Fraternity today a Secular Institute. Recognised at diocesan level in , in FCF became a member of the General Association grouping together the Charles de Foucauld Fraternities which draw on his teachings in order to update them so that they meet the demands of the age, harmonising contemplative life with missionary activity extended to the poorest sections of society.
FCF is an association of lay women wishing to live in virginity according to the charism of Charles de Foucauld, as a vocation and as a state of life taken on and offered.

The fundamental cells of the FCF are the " base fraternities" , small groups of six and seven members. The base fraternities in one country or group of countries make up regions animated by regional teams. The International Team is elected by the international General Assembly, and comprises the international " Responsible" and representatives of each continent.
Its task is to safeguard fidelity to the charism of Charles de Foucauld, promote communion within the Fraternity, and to implement the guidelines laid down by the International General Assembly , the decisionmaking and supreme governing body of FCF composed of the outgoing International Team, the delegates elected by the grassroots, and the members of the new International Team.
At the beginning of the s, realising the need to rebuild the Christian presence in the student world, Father Luigi Giussani, a professor at the Theological Faculty at Venegono Varese dedicated himself to teaching religion in schools. This led to the establishment of Communion and Liberation which, in , was to be canonically recognised by the Ordinary Abbot of Montecassino, Mgr Martino Matronola.
The first fraternity groups were set up in the latter half of the s by CL graduates who, using a method based on communion, wished to strengthen their membership of the Church as adults, along with the responsibilities that this entails. It was through their spread to various countries that the Fraternity of Communion and Liberation came about. On 11 February the Pontifical Council for the Laity decreed recognition of the Fraternity of Communion and Liberation as an international association of the faithful of Pontifical Right.
The essence of the CL charism is the proclamation that God became Man; in the affirmation that this man - Jesus of Nazareth, who died and rose again - is a present event, whose visible sign is communion, that is to say, the unity of a people led by a living person, the Bishop of Rome; in the awareness that it is only in God made man, and hence within the life of the Church, that man is more true and humanity is truly more human.
In the educational proposal made by CL, the free acceptance by the individual of the Christian message is determined by the discovery that the needs of the human heart are met by the annunciation of a message that fulfils them. It is the reasonableness of the faith which leads men and women who have been transformed by their encounter with Christ to commit themselves with Christian experience to affect the whole of society. The educational process, nurtured by proclamation and catechesis, attending retreats and spiritual exercises, and the celebration of the sacraments, gives pride of place to the dimensions of cultural work as a means of deepening and expressing their faith and as a condition for having a responsible presence in society; charity work , as education in service to be freely given to others and social commitment; and the mission , as education in the sense of the catholicity of the Church and as a vocational choice.
Bearing witness to Christ in schools and universities, in factories and offices, and in the local neighbourhood and in the city, takes place above all through work, which is the specific way in which adults relate to reality. The life of the Fraternity is lived through the free formation of groups of men and women of all conditions and states of life, whose friendship and communion are based upon their common commitment to move forward together towards holiness, which they acknowledge to be the genuine purpose of human existence.
The association is guided by the President and by the Central Diakonia , of which all the international leaders are members, and the officials in all the various areas in which it is present, and representatives of the other entities that have emerged from the CL charism: the Memores Domini Lay Association see page ; the priestly Fraternity of the Missionaries of St Charles Borromeo; the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of the Assumption. In the dioceses, the diocesan leader is assisted by a Diakonia and by a spiritual Assistant appointed by the local Bishop acting on a proposal by the Fraternity President.
Since , the Communion and Liberation International Centre has been operating in Rome, as the liaison centre linking all the parts of the movement worldwide.
Over 60, people share the CL experience. Individuals and groups belonging to the Fraternity have taken the responsibility to create cultural, charitable and entrepreneurial works linked together in the Company of Works which has offices in Italy and abroad. The Sacred Heart Foundation in Milan is directly dependent upon the Fraternity, as a non-profit entity which manages schools, and works for the promotion and protection of free education, consistent with the Christian tradition and the teaching of the Church.
Originally called the "Lay Fraternity of the Dominican Order" and recognised as such by the Master General of the Order in , it was first recognised at the diocesan level by the Archbishop of Buenos Aires in For over 40 years, the Fraternity has been performing its mission through events marked by Dominican spirituality, and through the commitment of families, adults and young people that find in it a place for personal and community salvation as well as a specific kind of apostolic action.
FASTA sets out to build up the city of God amidst the cities of humankind, as a place where social, political, cultural and religious self-fulfilment is decided, by evangelising culture, the family and the younger generations. The Fraternity pursues these aims through systematic human and spiritual formation and the education of the individual in social living and the awareness of social duties. FASTA comprises a branch for the laity and a branch for priests. Responsibility for government and its work is vested in the laity, who may be de jure members or de facto members.
The de jure members are those whose vocation leads them to undertake the apostolic commitment of the Fraternity, with their membership sanctioned by an official ceremony. The de facto members are those who do not have legal ties with the Fraternity but participate in its life and share its ideals and spirituality. The pedagogy of the Association revolves around three main points: prayer life, community life, apostolic life.
For young volunteers there is a period of discernment and meetings, lasting for a minimum of six months, three weekends of religious instruction, and a 15 day training period. The ongoing formation of the members of the Fraternity of St Maximilian Kolbe is given through monthly meetings community school , quarterly meetings reflection weekends and annual meetings spiritual vacations.
This experience, which continued for several decades, and involved other people, gradually led them to the desire to strive for Christian perfection and to proclaim the Gospel. On 22 February the Pontifical Council for the Laity issued a decree recognising the Heralds of the Gospel as an international association of the faithful of Pontifical Right. The EPs strive to be instruments of holiness in the Church by encouraging close unity between faith and life, and working to evangelise temporal realities, particularly through art and culture.
Their apostolate, which differs depending upon the environments in which they work, gives pride of place to parish animation, evangelising families, providing catechetical and cultural formation to young people, and disseminating religious literature. There is a particular focus on organising artistic events music, drama in churches, schools, hospitals, factories, offices and prisons.
The educational efforts of the association focus on developing an interior life firmly rooted in the Eucharist, devotion to our Lady and fidelity to the Successor of Peter. The formation route taken by the members comprises the study of moral theology, exegesis, history, and a thorough training in the arts and modern languages.
The supreme authority of the EPs is the General Assembly, which elects the General Council to assist the General President , as the fount of unity of the association, in governing it. The association also includes Companions , who can be families or Religious who develop the charism of the association in their respective environments, and Honorary Companions. In each country they gather together in sodalities, made up of men and women, with their own government elected by the Assembly, coordinated by a Regional Council.
The Heralds sharing the common life live in houses for brothers and for sisters. The specific purpose of the Association is to promote the imitation and the worship of the Holy Family, helping Christian families to shape themselves in its image and to become communities of disciples, witnesses and apostles of the Family of Nazareth. The members of the Association wishing to deepen their commitment can find inspiration and guidance in the various institutes dedicated to the Holy Family, establishing a particular bond with one of these religious families and becoming part of them.
The Association offers member families a graded plan of doctrinal, spiritual and moral formation in appropriate institutions, as well as a spiritual life guidance programme to support and nurture their faith, witness and apostolic work. The members of the Association find a special bond of communion in the Home Visit at which families gather in prayer around an image of the Holy Family.
The Holy Family Association is organised at the parish, diocesan and national level. At each level there is a Council made up of married couples assisted by a priest. The World Council , under the Presidency of the Superior General of the Sons of the Holy Family, and comprising three married couples and a priest of the Institute, performing the function of General Secretary of the Association, coordinates the work of the National Councils and promotes the purposes of the Association worldwide.
The founding and animation of prayer groups was a missionary activity from the beginning, starting with children and gradually involving the parents, neighbours and friends. It was approved by the Archbishop of Rouen in and spread among young people and adults, evangelising in neighbourhoods, parishes and deprived environments, and in the mission lands.
The purpose of Tuus Totus is to spread devotion to our Lady as the means of reaching Jesus Christ and that union with our Lord which is the perfection of Christian life. This aim is pursued by leading people to rediscover prayer to our Lady and to increase familiarity with the Gospel by reciting the Holy Rosary and meditating on the Mysteries.
The members of the Association - lay, religious men and women, and priests - are driven by a missionary spirit and by the desire to work in the Church according to the teachings of the second Vatican Council and the spirituality of St Louis Marie Grignon de Montfort. The formation process, centred around devotion to our Lady, Mother of Mercy and our Mother, by renewing baptismal vows leads the members to give themselves to our Lord through Mary, consecrating to him the value of all we do. Each one therefore reaches the merciful love of God to the extent that they are transformed from within according to the spirit of a similar love towards their neighbour.
In addition to providing formation to undertake pastoral and mission responsibilities, the specific areas of action of the Association are the evangelisation of families and environments in which the proclamation of the Gospel and the presence of the Church are lacking or missing. Tuus Totus is headed by a General President and a General Vice-President, and members can be either affiliated or united members. Affiliated members are associations, religious Congregations, or church works and individuals who play a full part in Tuus Totus and practise its spirituality according to the spiritual Directory.
United members are associations, movements, Church works or religious Congregations in communion with Tuus Totus in which some of their members practise the specific spirituality of the Association while others have made their act of consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary. In both instances, to safeguard the freedom of everyone, it is essential for every individual to make a personal act of membership.
As the missionary intention of the Association aims to bring the essentials of Christian life within the reach of all, in particular the least and the poorest, there are prayer groups of children, young people and adults that work in contact with numerous ecclesial movements, new communities, Marian movements and spirituality Centres.
ICPE Mission groups together communities that are committed to promoting and supporting missionary vocations among members of the laity, by providing training in evangelisation and by developing missions in various parts of the world. The heart of their spirituality is the baptismal covenant of love for God, and the core of their apostolate is the commitment to prepare lay men and women dedicated to the mission, and capable of responding to the call to holiness.
The formation process of the members takes place, in docility to the Holy Spirit, through daily prayer, the sacraments, the study of Scripture and service.

In the pursuit of its purposes, ICPE Mission seeks to read the signs of the times, in order to present the Christian message as a prophetic response to the specific situations in contemporary life, using methods, concepts and terminology which are suitable for handing on the Gospel of Christ to the men and women of today. The Executive Council is flanked by a consultative structure made up of national Directors and pastoral services Directors, promoted by the Institute at the international level.
The association has lay members, married and single, diocesan priests, and consecrated men and women. Frater has 51 member associations in 51 different countries, as follows: Africa 12 , Asia 7 , Europe 12 , North America 10 and South America On 14 April , the Pontifical Council for the Laity issued a decree recognising the International Alliance of Catholic Knights as an international association of the faithful of Pontifical Right. The Association aspires to invite all Christians to a greater deepening of their spiritual life and growth in the love of Christ, of the Church and of the Pope, in accordance with the teachings of St.
The Association is committed to disseminating the Works of Saint Catherine and research on her, in order to highlight the influence she had on the life of the Church and the Papacy in her age. It also organises liturgical prayer meetings animated by Catherinian spirituality, as well as cultural events lectures, readings, conferences. It is also committed to performing individual acts of charity for the benefit of the poor and the disabled.
AIC is concerned with different forms of poverty and marginalisation, and its work is based on the social teaching of the Church, under the motto "combat poverty working together". The operational guidelines of the Association are set out in a basic document agreed internationally, committing it to be present in three dimensions of charity: through individual work, collective action, and action on structures.
The interpersonal dimension of charity, community action and political action are therefore experienced in the light of the Gospel. The basic and specific feature of the Vincentian "style" is the personal meeting with the poor in their own homes and environments, which demands serious and continuing formation, based on and nurtured by a relationship with Christ and witness of life.
The AIC volunteers do not merely meet the physical needs of the poor, for they also accompany them spiritually and help them to recover their dignity, hope, self-confidence, and to be re-incorporated into society. This request became a project for the Founders: to help the mentally disabled and their families to find their rightful place in the Church and in society.
The condition that the organisers laid down for joining the pilgrimage was that they should set up communities made up of people suffering from mental disabilities, and their relatives and friends, especially the young. At Easter , 12, people arrived at the Lourdes Grotto from 15 different countries, including 4, disabled people.
Their experience at Lourdes strengthened relations between the existing communities and helped to bring into being numerous others throughout the world. To foster the growth of the Association, it became essential to enshrine its spirit and the purposes in a Charter and a Constitution that were adopted at the General Assembly held at Wetherby, England, in CCIC was established in the same year as UNESCO, to guarantee a Catholic presence in this new United Nations agency which had been instituted to help the member states to find responses, in a changing world, to the key issues arising in the fields of education, science, culture, communications and their related problems.
ICCG does not have representatives throughout the world. The scope of its work depends on the participation of its members in training sessions and on study groups, in addition to its publications which are sent out to several hundred readers. ICCRS is governed by the Council , which comprises the President, a Vice President and 12 Councillors representing different areas of Catholic Charismatic Renewal and the geographic areas in which it has been established. In the performance of its functions, the Council is accompanied by a bishop as its spiritual assistant Episcopal Adviser.
The decisions adopted by the Council are implemented by an Office , headed by an Executive Director, responsible for administration, working under the supervision of the President, and according to the instructions issued. BICE was founded in Paris as a tool to serve those who, in the Catholic world, are working to establish the rights of children and to ensure their comprehensive growth. It made a decisive contribution to the drafting of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Some of the activities of BICE that have had an impact at worldwide level include the launching of the first international programme for the children of inmates, innovative initiatives in the field of relations between humanitarian principles and state sovereignty, and the promotion of the International Year of the Child.
From the outset, the Committee has worked in conjunction with the Church and has special relations with the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant People two members of the management Group are "structurally" responsible for relations with this department of the Roman Curia. It also has corresponding members. The first meetings of Catholic Guide leaders from different countries began in , and were held every three years; in the Secretariat was established to guarantee contacts and exchanges between one meeting and the next.
As the initiative developed, the idea emerged to set up a permanent structured organisation. ICCG brings together the national Catholic guides associations, national inter-denominational guiding organisations with a Catholic majority, and national groups of Catholic guides. Its activities involve about 2 million Catholic Guides.
Between and the officials of the Catholic Scout Associations reestablished contacts that had been broken off during the Second World War, and decided to meet every year. The supreme governing body of the ICCS is the World Council, which meets every three years, attended by the officials of the member organisations.
ICMC was established in order to deal with the massive movement of refugees following the upheavals caused by the Second World War, and also in order to restore to millions of people the hope that they would be able to begin a new life. The initiative was the work of Monsignor Luigi Ligutti and the German Johannes Schauff, who submitted a proposal to Pope Pius XII to set up an international body to coordinate the work performed by Catholics in the field of migration.
It was set up with the encouragement and support of Monsignor Giovanni Battista Montini, the future Paul VI, and from the beginning it coordinated the work of Catholic national groups working with migrants and providing technical assistance to groups and organisations at their request. ICMC has full members and affiliated members in 65 countries with operational bases in some 20 countries. As they completed their studies to join the working world, they were anxious to perpetuate their apostolic ideals into their adult lives.
They envisaged creating a Catholic movement for not only graduates but for culture in general. It was attended by intellectuals with allegiances to different religions who debated in a personal capacity on the issue, "The influence of the great religions on the present life of nations in the East and in the West". The supreme governing body of ICMICA is the Plenary Assembly , made up of representatives of the constituent member associations, and is convened every four years to elect the President, Vice Presidents, the members of the International Council , and the Secretary General nominated by the latter.
The President, the Secretary-General, the Treasurer and the Ecclesiastical Assistant make up the International Team , as the executive and coordination organ. At the Continental and regional levels, activities are coordinated by the regional Vice Presidents and Coordinators. Membership of ICMCA is open to constituent members Catholic professional organisations recognised by the Church hierarchy , corresponding members and individual members.
ICRA is governed by the General Assembly made up of representatives of the member associations, which takes decisions and elects the President, the General Secretary and the General Council; the General Council implements the programmes adopted by the General Assembly and comprises the President, a Vice-President for each continental area, the General Secretary, the Ecclesiastical Assistant, the Youth Coordination Officer, and representatives of the member associations.
ACISJF is open to full membership , or associate membership if the member cannot undertake all the obligations of full membership and wishes to cooperate to achieve the objectives of the Association; there are also corresponding members who work in the same field and exchange services and information with ACISJF. UCIP is governed by the General Assembly, which meets every three years attended by representatives of the Federations and regional or continental member Units; the Council , composed of the members of the UCIP Executive Committee and the Executive Committees of the federations and regional or continental member Units; the Executive Committee , made up of the President, Vice President, the Secretary General, Treasurer and the Presidents of the Federations and the regional or continental member Units.
UNIAPAC has active members , which are associations that refer explicitly to the Christian spirit and associate members , which are individuals and corporate persons that support its work. At a meeting in Rome, the first agreements were concluded to found an international Union, and the foundations were laid for drafting the first Statutes of the IAG, that were ratified in Vienna in coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Austrian professional association. In the Union adopted the present name, and updated the Statutes, amending them to make them more consonant with the times and needs of the member countries.
On 26 January the Pontifical Council for the Laity issued the decree recognising the International Confederation of Professional Associations of Domestic Workers as an international association of the faithful of Pontifical Right. It was after a personal experience of sickness that he felt the need to create an apostolic movement of priests and lay people affirming the total baptismal commitment of the suffering Christian, not only as an object of care but as the active player in a specific apostolate to be performed for the benefit of the Church and society.
Within the movement, which was founded jointly with Sister Elvira Myriam Psorulla, the Silent Workers of the Cross see page emerged later: this was a group of people with the task of guaranteeing the continuity of the movement, taking managerial roles and radically practising devotion to the apostolate by professing the Evangelical Counsels and through consecration to Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception. It was the need to manifest the unity of spirit shared by the Silent Workers of the Cross and the Volunteers of Suffering centers, also at the institutional level, that led to the creation of International Confederation CVS.
On 21 January the Pontifical Council for the Laity issued a decree recognising the Confederazione Internazionale dei Centri Volontari della Sofferenza as an international association of the faithful of Pontifical Right. International Confederation CVS comprises about a hundred confederated associations with a membership of about 10,, and is present in 12 countries, as follows: Africa 2 , Asia 1 , Europe 6 , North America 1 and South America 2. The experience of this group of young working men and women led by him rapidly spread to many other countries in all five continents, and in International Young Christian Workers was officially established.
YCW is a learn-by-doing movement, based on the "see, judge, act" method, and works to protect the dignity, due to all sons and daughters of God, of young workers and unemployed men and women, living in situations of exclusion, exploitation and repression. The purpose of this new structure is to coordinate and support the work of the national movements in their evangelisation of young workers, faithful to the thinking of Joseph Cardijn.
As a coordination structure ICYCW respects the organisational and operational autonomy of the national member movements committed to meeting the specific needs and operating in the particular living and working situations of young workers in their countries. The national movements, created by the federations, dioceses or zones which comprise the grassroots groups living in parishes and neighbourhoods, hold periodic meetings where necessary and possible, giving rise to continental or regional Coordinations.
The decision-making body of the ICYCW is the International Council which convenes every four years, and to which all the member movements, associations or partners are invited. The International Secretariat serves the national movements, and comprises four officials elected by them, accompanied by an Ecclesiastical Assistant. The Secretariat facilitates exchange of information, teaching aids, staff and experience between the movements; it helps to provide training for officials and accompanying persons; it works to spread the YCW worldwide; it supports and coordinates development activities; it speaks out on behalf of the life, experience and problems of young workers at the international level.
FIPC does not manage works of its own. It is the affiliated national associations that promote specific initiatives to meet the demands of the neediest sections of the populations of their own countries, study the bioethics issues in conjunction with institutes of higher education, and cooperate with Third World assistance organisations. Voix du monde rural , Lettre aux coordinateurs , Lettre aux mouvements , published quarterly in French, English and Spanish. AMI has 29 affiliated member and associate member associations in 29 different countries as follows: Africa 4 , Asia 3 , Europe 12 , North America 3 , and South America 7.
Website: www. The Members of Light and Life form small groups, creating communities within the parishes. The head of the movement is the General Moderator. There is also a Moderator at the national, diocesan and parish levels. Moderators perform their service with the assistance of a diakonia made up of both members of the laity and religious. Responsibility of the family branch is entrusted, at every level, to a Moderator together with a married couple.
The officials of Light and Life meet once a year for the National Consultation of Leaders, which is a major opportunity for praying and reflecting on the tasks of the movement, in the light of the Magisterium of the Church and the signs of the times. The house is the fundamental unit of the structure of the Association. In exceptional cases, individual members may continue to live in their own homes while taking part in the life of their house as their benchmark. There are about Memores Domini , and aspirants.

Marconi, 33 Fraz. Gudo G. Thanks to the commitment of the Community, over the past 15 years in these geographic areas, two churches have also been built together with 15 chapels with premises for the catechumenate and catechesis. There are 1, full members and members testing their vocation in 18 countries as follows: Africa 4 , Asia 3 , Europe 6 and South America 5. PDF-FM promotes above all works of charity on behalf of the poorest churches in the territories of the former Soviet Union. The preaching of Fr Riccardo Lombardi S.
Between and the Promoting Group gathered around Father Lombardi, renewing methods and action strategies. Between and , the Movement developed courses of study on change, dialogue, secularisation, the Church as the people of God, and the world; it launched the "New image of the parish" project; it decided to decentralise, going beyond the Pius XII Centre. From to , it broadened its study courses to the concepts of participation and justice; pastoral projects were drawn up for young people, families, ministries and religious Institutes; the diocesan renewal- vangelisation Project was launched.
In the medical field the problem of detecting pathological conditions in Magnetic Resonance MR Images has been considered. T he method of regularization by Entropy functional has been pioneering introduced for the solution of First Kind Fredholm Integral equations. The corresponding paper U. Amato, W. Hughes: Maximum Entropy Regularization of Fredholm Integral equations of the First Kind, Inverse Problems 7, has been selected by the journal Inverse Problems as representative of year for the celebrations of the 25th year of the journal. The problem of nonparametric regression has been considered: a method based on the Minimum Noise Fraction MNF has been developed specific for a problem of abundancy estimation in remote sensing; the method of wavelet regularization has been developed having optimal theoretical properties among linear methods.
A method based on wavelets has also been developed able to deal with nonequispaced and nondyadic data. Specific regression methods have been developed for the case of multivariate time series, relying on splines and wavelets for smooth and nonsmooth components, with particular penalization functionals that preserve sparseness of the solution by groups. In this respect the solutions also aim at reducing the dimension of the problems mitigating the curse of dimensionality. A specific method for the nonparametric estimate of the density function has also been considered endowed with a Factor Analysis model that can also applied to a classification problem.
More methodologies have been considered for the classification problem based on the Discriminant Analysis endowed with Independent Component Analysis ICDA , also exploiting the spatial correlation of images Localized Discriminant Analysis ; for the 2-class problem a method has been developed Cumulative Discriminant Analysis, CDA that allows to give solutions having the same Type-I and Type-II error.
This method has been introduced for a competition by ESA on cloud detection from images taken by multispectral sensors onboard satellites by state-of-art methodologies, ranking the second.
