Introduction to Mathematical Techniques in Pattern Recognition by Harry C. Andrews This volume is one of the first cohesive treatments of the use of mathematics for studying interactions between various recognition environments. It brings together techniques previously scattered throughout the literature and provides a concise common notation that will facilitate the understanding and comparison of the many aspects of mathematical pattern recognition. The contents of this volume are divided into five interrelated subject areas: Feature Selection, Distribution Free Classification, Statistical Classification, Nonsupervised Learning, and Sequential Learning. Appendices describing specific aspects of feature selection and extensive reference and bibliographies are included. 1972 253 pp. Threshold Logic and its Applications by Saburo Muroga This is the first in-depth exposition of threshold logic and its applications using linear programming and integer programming as optimization tools. It presents threshold logic as a unified theory of conventional simple gates, threshold gates and their networks. This unified viewpoint explicitly reveals many important properties that were formerly concealed in the framework of conventional switching theory (based essentially on and, or and not gates). 1971 478 pp. Knowing and Guessing A Quantitative Study of Inference and Information By Satosi Watanabe This volume presents a coherent theoretical view of a field now split into different disciplines: philosophy, information science, cybernetics, psychology, electrical engineering, and physics. The target of investigation is the cognitive process of knowing and guessing. In contrast to traditional philosophy, the approach is quantitative rather than qualitative. The study is formal in the sense that the author is not interested in the contents of knowledge or the physiological mechanism of the process of knowing. "The author’s style is lucid, his comments are illuminating. The result is a fascinating book, which will be of interest to scientists in many different fields." — Nature 1969 592 pp.
This volume, containing contributions by experts from all over the world, is a collection of 21 articles which present review and research material describing the evolution and recent developments of various pattern recognition methodologies, ranging from statistical, syntactic/linguistic, fuzzy-set-theoretic, neural, genetic-algorithmic and rough-set-theoretic to hybrid soft computing, with significant real-life applications. In addition, the book describes efficient soft machine learning algorithms for data mining and knowledge discovery. With a balanced mixture of theory, algorithms and applications, as well as up-to-date information and an extensive bibliography, Pattern Recognition: From Classical to Modern Approaches is a very useful resource. Contents: Pattern Recognition: Evolution of Methodologies and Data Mining (A Pal & S K Pal); Adaptive Stochastic Algorithms for Pattern Classification (M A L Thathachar & P S Sastry); Shape in Images (K V Mardia); Decision Trees for Classification: A Review and Some New Results (R Kothari & M Dong); Syntactic Pattern Recognition (A K Majumder & A K Ray); Fuzzy Sets as a Logic Canvas for Pattern Recognition (W Pedrycz & N Pizzi); Neural Network Based Pattern Recognition (V David Sanchez A); Networks of Spiking Neurons in Data Mining (K Cios & D M Sala); Genetic Algorithms, Pattern Classification and Neural Networks Design (S Bandyopadhyay et al.); Rough Sets in Pattern Recognition (A Skowron & R Swiniarski); Automated Generation of Qualitative Representations of Complex Objects by Hybrid Soft-Computing Methods (E H Ruspini & I S Zwir); Writing Speed and Writing Sequence Invariant On-line Handwriting Recognition (S-H Cha & S N Srihari); Tongue Diagnosis Based on Biometric Pattern Recognition Technology (K Wang et al.); and other papers. Readership: Graduate students, researchers and academics in pattern recognition.
I was shocked to see a student’s report on performance comparisons between support vector machines (SVMs) and fuzzy classi?ers that we had developed withourbestendeavors.Classi?cationperformanceofourfuzzyclassi?erswas comparable, but in most cases inferior, to that of support vector machines. This tendency was especially evident when the numbers of class data were small. I shifted my research e?orts from developing fuzzy classi?ers with high generalization ability to developing support vector machine–based classi?ers. This book focuses on the application of support vector machines to p- tern classi?cation. Speci?cally, we discuss the properties of support vector machines that are useful for pattern classi?cation applications, several m- ticlass models, and variants of support vector machines. To clarify their - plicability to real-world problems, we compare performance of most models discussed in the book using real-world benchmark data. Readers interested in the theoretical aspect of support vector machines should refer to books such as [109, 215, 256, 257].
This book provides a unified approach for developing a fuzzy classifier and explains the advantages and disadvantages of different classifiers through extensive performance evaluation of real data sets. It thus offers new learning paradigms for analyzing neural networks and fuzzy systems, while training fuzzy classifiers. Function approximation is also treated and function approximators are compared.

PATTERN CLASSIFICATION a unified view of statistical and neural approaches The product of years of research and practical experience in pattern classification, this book offers a theory-based engineering perspective on neural networks and statistical pattern classification. Pattern Classification sheds new light on the relationship between seemingly unrelated approaches to pattern recognition, including statistical methods, polynomial regression, multilayer perceptron, and radial basis functions. Important topics such as feature selection, reject criteria, classifier performance measurement, and classifier combinations are fully covered, as well as material on techniques that, until now, would have required an extensive literature search to locate. A full program of illustrations, graphs, and examples helps make the operations and general properties of different classification approaches intuitively understandable. Offering a lucid presentation of complex applications and their algorithms, Pattern Classification is an invaluable resource for researchers, engineers, and graduate students in this rapidly developing field.
