Abstract A Fortran 77 package of an iterated discriminant analysis multi-background and signal recognition, IDA 1.0, is presented. The primary target is the high energy physics community, but it is general enough to be used in many classification application areas. The package can easily be used as is or may readily be modified for alternative purposes and optimizations. Title of program: IDA version 1.0 Catalogue Id: ADGV_v1_0 Nature of problem The problem is to discriminate one or more backgrounds against one or more signals. In many situations the background is large and the signal small, or there is a large overlap between the two. A method is needed to pick up the signal and remove the background by using different characteristics of both. Versions of this program held in the CPC repository in Mendeley Data ADGV_v1_0; IDA version 1.0; 10.1016/S0010-4655(97)00100-8 This program has been imported from the CPC Program Library held at Queen's University Belfast (1969-2019)
