Abstract
We propose a statistical approach with which to identify the indexes crucial to classifying Chinese yams by shape. The proposed approach comprises two steps. The first step is to estimate the diameters indicating the shapes of yams along their length, and the second step is to characterize the shapes of sample yams employing principal component analysis and correlation analysis. It is found that the ratio of the weight to length of yams can be used as a crucial index for the purpose of classification of yams.
