### receiver operating characteristic (roc) and area under the curve (AUC) in matlab

Here is an implementation corresponding to Tom Fawcett's algorithm 3 in "roc graphs: notes and practical considerations for researchers, " 2004.

function auc=areaundercurve(FPR,TPR);

% given true positive rate and false positive rate calculates the area under the curve

% true positive are on the y-axis and false positives on the x-axis

% sum rectangular area between all points

% example: auc=areaundercurve(FPR,TPR);

[x2,inds]=sort(FPR);

x2=[x2,1]; % the trick is in inventing a last point 1,1

y2=TPR(inds);

y2=[y2,1];

xdiff=diff(x2);

xdiff=[x2(1),xdiff];

auc1=sum(y2.*xdiff); % upper point area

auc2=sum([0,y2([1:end-1])].*xdiff); % lower point area

auc=mean([auc1,auc2]);

function [TP,FP]=getfptp(T,Y)

Y(Y>=0)=1;Y(Y<0)=-1; % target class (positive) is 1

TP=sum( ( (Y==1) + (T==1) )==2 );

FN=sum( ( (Y==-1) + (T==1) )==2 );

FP=sum( ( (Y==1) + (T==-1) )==2 );

TN=sum( ( (Y==-1) + (T==-1) )==2 );

TP=TP/(TP+FN);

FP=FP/(FP+TN);

end

function auc=areaundercurve(FPR,TPR);

% given true positive rate and false positive rate calculates the area under the curve

% true positive are on the y-axis and false positives on the x-axis

% sum rectangular area between all points

% example: auc=areaundercurve(FPR,TPR);

[x2,inds]=sort(FPR);

x2=[x2,1]; % the trick is in inventing a last point 1,1

y2=TPR(inds);

y2=[y2,1];

xdiff=diff(x2);

xdiff=[x2(1),xdiff];

auc1=sum(y2.*xdiff); % upper point area

auc2=sum([0,y2([1:end-1])].*xdiff); % lower point area

auc=mean([auc1,auc2]);

function [TP,FP]=getfptp(T,Y)

Y(Y>=0)=1;Y(Y<0)=-1; % target class (positive) is 1

TP=sum( ( (Y==1) + (T==1) )==2 );

FN=sum( ( (Y==-1) + (T==1) )==2 );

FP=sum( ( (Y==1) + (T==-1) )==2 );

TN=sum( ( (Y==-1) + (T==-1) )==2 );

TP=TP/(TP+FN);

FP=FP/(FP+TN);
