Pattern Recognition

Front Cover
Academic Press, Nov 26, 2008 - Computers - 984 pages

This 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).

    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
