Abstract: In this paper we present a technique for reduction of spectra based on the methods of multivariate statistical analysis. The procedure was developed for general processing of digital, high resolution spectra. The recursive band selection method can be applied in studies for weighting (original) spectral bands according their sensitivity to a predefined classification scheme. Additionally, definition of medium and broad band systems is possible, which can efficiently substitute the original spectrum. According to the characteristics of the method resulted from a remote sensing application (convergence, robustness), it is suggested for use in different (radio, UV, X-ray etc.) astronomical studies as well.
