Hi All,

I'm looking for references on CHAID and CART modeling. Also, I would be
grateful if someone could point out references to the above modeling
techniques and S-Plus.

Thanks in advance,
Samir Mishra.

Some references follow. You may want to check out our ongoing project
comparing classifiers (mostly trees methods) on datasets with missing
values:

http://www.stat.wisc.edu/~limt/mv.html

The technical report of our previous empirical comparison (no missing
values) can be downloaded from

http://www.stat.wisc.edu/~limt/compare.ps (or compare.pdf)

This paper has been tentatively accepted by the Machine Learning Journal.
