Receiver operating characteristics of categorical misclassifications. The figure shows the Receiver Operating Characteristics for distinguishing electropherograms of category 10 against the set union of other categories. The area under the curve (AUC) gives a measure of classification performance. Random assignment is equal to an area of 0.5, whereas perfect assignment is equal to an area of 1.0. Only few experiments are exchanged over more than one categorical border.
