We have derived this theoretical functional relationship between B and AZ, by using the parameter a and b in the binormal ROC model and the prior probability of signal events (α); here, the two underlying normal distributions are N(μs ,σs) and N(μn,σn); and, a = (μs - μn)/σs and b = σn/σs . We empirically found that, if parameters b and α are constant, B values in relation to given AZ values monotonically decrease as AZ values increase, and these relationship curves have monotonically decreasing slopes.Elsevier2002-03engjournal articlehttp://hdl.handle.net/2237/5310https://nagoya.repo.nii.ac.jp/records/3880http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0169-2607(01)00157-201692607Computer Methods and Programs in Biomedicine673187194https://nagoya.repo.nii.ac.jp/record/3880/files/Paper_bind.pdfapplication/pdf351.4 kB2018-02-19
