Data Set Information:

-- 3 classes of waves
-- 40 attributes, all of which include noise
-- The latter 19 attributes are all noise attributes with mean 0 and variance 1
-- See the book for details (49-55, 169)
-- contains 5000 instances

Attribute Information:

-- Each class is generated from a combination of 2 of 3 "base" waves
-- Each instance is generated f added noise (mean 0, variance 1) in each attribute
-- See the book for details (49-55, 169)
