Selection of known features

    W = FEATSEL(K,J)

 K Input dimensionality
 J Index vector of features to be selected

 W Mapping performing the feature selection


This is a simple support routine that writes feature selection  in terms of a mapping. If A is a K-dimensional dataset and J are  the feature indices to be selected, then B = A*W does the same as  B = A(:,J).

The use of this routine is a mapping V computed for a lower dimensional  subspace defined by J can now be defined by W = FEATSEL(K,J)*V as a  mapping in the original K-dimensional space.

The selected features can be retrieved by W.DATA or by +W.  See below for various methods to perform feature selection.
