## Pattern RecognitionThis book considers classical and current theory and practice, of supervised, unsupervised and semi-supervised 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. · Thoroughly developed to include many more worked examples to give greater understanding of the various methods and techniques · Many more diagrams included--now in two color--to provide greater insight through visual presentation · Matlab code of the most common methods are given at the end of each chapter. · More Matlab code is available, together with an accompanying manual, via this site · Latest hot topics included to further the reference value of the text including non-linear dimensionality reduction techniques, relevance feedback, semi-supervised learning, spectral clustering, combining clustering algorithms. · An accompanying book with Matlab code of the most common methods and algorithms in the book, together with a descriptive summary, and solved examples including real-life data sets in imaging, and audio recognition. The companion book will be available separately or at a special packaged price (ISBN: 9780123744869). |

The book that is actually provided when this book is purchased is 'Plastic Analysis and Design of Steel Structures' by M. Bill Wong

this is a very very good book for pattern recognition. describe all concepts from base level.

but drawback is high price, no low price edition.- SureshD, JRF,ISM
