The m-file provides a tool to calculate the Bhattacharyya Distance Measure (BDM) between two classes of normal distributed data. The BDM is widely used in Pattern Recognition as a criterion for Feature Selection.

Directly calculation may result in divide by zero error due to possible (near) singularity of cov(X1)*cov(X2). The improved code uses the Cholesky factorization for the normal cases but uses sqrtm for near singular cases.
