In this paper we introduce a new feature selection algorithm to remove the irrelevant or redundant features in the data sets. In this algorithm the importance of a feature is based on its fitting to the Catastrophe model. Akaike information crite- rion value is used for ranking the features in the data set. The proposed algorithm is compared with well-known RELIEF feature selection algorithm. Breast Cancer, Parkinson Telemonitoring data and Slice locality data sets are used to evaluate the model.
