We address the problem of image classification. Our aim is to improve the performance of MLiT: mixture of Gaussians under Linear transformations, a feature-based classifier proposed in  aiming to reduce dimensionality based on a linear transformation which is not restricted to be orthogonal. Boosting might offer an interesting solution by improving the performance of a given base classification algorithm. In this paper, we propose to integrate MLiT within the framework of AdaBoost, which is a widely applied method for boosting. For experimental validation, we have evaluated the proposed method on the four UCI data sets (Vehicle, OpticDigit, WDBC, WPBC)  and the author's own. Boosting has proved capable of enhancing the performance of the base classifier on two data sets with improvements of up to 12.8%.
