Abstract: Principal Component Analysis (PCA) is a multivariate procedure that investigates a data slab in which clarifications are designated by numerous inter-correlated measureable reliant variables. Its objective is to excerpt the imperative evidence from the table, to characterise it as a set of new orthogonal variables called principal components, and to show the outline of resemblance of the clarifications and of the variables as points in maps. The worth of the PCA model can be estimated using cross-validation procedures. Statistically, PCA be contingent upon the Eigen-decomposition of positive semi-definite matrices and upon the singular value decomposition of rectangular matrices. The number of principal components is less than or equivalent to the number of unique variables. It is a way of classifying patterns in data, and conveying the data in such a way as to highpoint their resemblances and modifications. This  is  the  survey  paper  of  the  previous  concept  and  procedures for PCA.
