An approach to approximating the decision boundary of an ensemble of two-class classifiers is proposed. Spectral coefficients are used to approximate the discrete probability density function of a Boolean Function. It is shown that the difference between first and third order coefficient approximation is a good indicator of optimal base classifier complexity. A theoretical analysis is supported by experimental results on a variety of Artificial and Real two-class problems.
