KEY BENEFIT: In recent years, pattern recognition, the classification of objects
into categories, has become an important part of image processing applications where the
input data is an image, as in x-rays and satellite pictures. This book is a complete
introduction to pattern recognition and its increasing role in image processing, featuring
worked-out problems based on real pattern recognition systems.
KEY TOPICS: Covers image processing, the hottest topic in signal processing;
probability; statistical decision making; nonparametric decision making; clustering; and
the processing of waveforms and images.
MARKET: For engineers and computer scientists who are designing image processing
