Abstract: Dimension reduction, or dimensionality reduction, is the process through which the number of variables observed in a study is reduced to a smaller number. The term Lymphoma defines a group of very common white blood cell cancers that affect both adult individuals and children. The correct diagnosis and treatment of lymphoma offers a significant survival rate. The Curse of Dimensionality is a common problem in which additional dimensions in data sets make information sparser. This can be managed by dimension reduction techniques. This study aims to compare the performance of PCA, ICA, Factor Analysis and LDA. LDA, PCA and Factor Analysis are shown to yield good results. A comparative table is given.
