This book considers classical and current theory and practice, of both supervised and unsupervised pattern recognition, to build a complete background for professionals and students of engineering. The authors, leading experts in the field of pattern recognition, have provided an up-to-date, self-contained volume encapsulating this wide spectrum of information. The very latest methods are incorporated in this edition: semi-supervised learning, combining clustering algorithms, and relevance feedback. This edition includes many more worked examples and diagrams (in two colour) to help give greater understanding of the methods and their application. Computer-based problems will be included with MATLAB code.The accompanying book contains extra worked examples and MATLAB code of all the examples used in this book. It is thoroughly developed to include many more worked examples to give greater understanding of this mathematically oriented subject. Many more diagrams are included now in two colour - to provide greater insight through visual presentation.
The accompanying manual includes MATLAB code of the methods and algorithms in the book, together with solved problems and real-life data sets in medial imaging, remote sensing and audio recognition. Latest hot topics are included to further the reference value of the text.
