	%X Ensemble learning algorithms such as AdaBoost and
Bagging have been in active research and shown improvements in
classification results for several benchmarking data sets with mainly
decision trees as their base classifiers. In this paper we experiment to
apply these Meta learning techniques with classifiers such as random
forests, neural networks and support vector machines. The data sets
are from MAGIC, a Cherenkov telescope experiment. The task is to
classify gamma signals from overwhelmingly hadron and muon
signals representing a rare class classification problem. We compare
the individual classifiers with their ensemble counterparts and
discuss the results. WEKA a wonderful tool for machine learning has
been used for making the experiments.
