Set the kernel type to squared exponential and set the inverse width:

```
kerntype <- "exponential"
wvec <- 2e-4
```

Measures can be classified into groups.

**Whole curve measures**

*meds*median magnitude(mag)*iqr*interquartile range of mag*shov*mean of absolute differences of successive observed*maxdiff*the maximum difference magnitudes*dscore*mean value of phi((mag-median)/sderr)- all the
*Richards measures*

**Fitted curve measures**(first smooth data then compute)

*totvar*total variation*quadvar*quadratic variation*famp*range of fitted curve*fslope*maximum derivative in the fitted curve*trend*linear trend of fitted curve

**Residual from fit measures**

*outl*take residuals of smoothed fit and use the maximum studentized residual.*std*SD of residuals*skewres*skewness of residuals*shapwilk*Shapiro-Wilk statistic of residuals (test for normality)

**Cluster measures**(based on groups of up to 4 measures in 30mins)

*lsd*fit the means within the groups (up to 4 measurements). Take the logged SD of the residuals from this fit*gscore*mean value of phi((mag-mean(mag))/sd) based on clusters*mdev*the max absolute residuals from this fit*gtvar*total variation of curve based on group means scaled by range of observation

**Other**(canâ€™t use these for discriminant purposes)

*wander*mean movement of object in (ra, dec) space*moveloc*range of motion in (ra, dec) space*nobs*number of measurements in the group

We have not used all these measures for classification purposes. Some we have not used, like *nobs*, because they would distort classification performance as explained in the article. Other measures were failed experiments in that they failed to incrementally improve classification performance. We have not reported these in the article but keep them here for future reference.
