Hey Guys , I'm development an app for my master degree and I'm facing an issue, I need to use the FDA classifier "fisher's discriminant analysis" (FDA) on android, but using opencv I only found the LDA " linear discriminant analysis", can some one explain the different between them and it's possible to get the same result with classifier FDA by applying the LDA classifier ?!

LDA is just a generalization of FDA. See wiki link and stack exchange link.

So yes, the final result should be the same. Based on what you specifically would like to do, you could code the algorithm yourself (it is pretty easy), use the face module FisherFace OpenCV implementation (please remember you will need the contrib modules to access the face module), or, if you are using Python, you can use Sci-kit Learn's LDA classifier
