Hey @ryan:ratml.org, I wanted to know why we are taking square root in this line https://github.com/mlpack/mlpack/blob/c8647b2bfef68dfd29a5a8612813f92cf2b79de0/src/mlpack/methods/decision_tree/multiple_random_dimension_select.hpp#L44?

What is the intuition behind it? Why not `numDimensions = dimensions` or `numDimensions = dimensions / 2`? Is it square root a heuristic?

RishabhGarg108 (RishabhGarg108): sorry for the slow response. I went digging for the source this morning, but I think the original Random Forests paper by Leo Breiman suggested using sqrt(d) here

Wikipedia suggests it's page 592 in "The Elements of Statistical Learning": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Random_forest (see "From bagging to random forests")

I checked the book. It says `floor(sqrt(p))` for classification and `floor(p / 3)` for regression.
