Dear friends,
I have a confusion about ROC curve and hopefully you can help me!
To plot ROC, i was naively using a simple command as plot(False_alarm_rate,Hit_rate,'-'). But, it is not exactly the same as perfcurve plot. To use this function, i wrote the following script
Q=reshape([Hit_rate False_alarm_rate],[],1);
Labels=[]; Labels = ones(size(Q,1),1);
Labels(end/2+1:end) = 0;
PosClass = 1;
[X Y T,AUC] = perfcurve(Labels,Q,PosClass);
figure, plot(X,Y,'r') % ROC
could you please tell me , what i am missing here?
- BTW, can we calculate d-prime from output of perfcurve?
thanks in advance, Karlo

Q must be classification scores. What you put in Q sounds more like what perfcurve should return as output. Take a classifier from the Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox such as decision tree, discriminant etc and look at the predict method. The second output from the predict method is classification score.

The standard ROC curve is a plot of TPR vs FPR. The doc for perfcurve defines TPR and FPR (as well as other criteria) in the name-value pair section. You could write down definitions of false alarm rate etc and see if you can transform those into TPR and FPR. I am sure you are at least as good as I am at algebra, and, unlike you, I do not know what hit rate and false alarm rate are.
