Pattern Recognition

Edited by Peng-Yeng Yin

National Chi Nan University, Taiwan

For more than 40 years, pattern recognition approaches are continuingly improving and have been used in an increasing number of areas with great success. This book discloses recent advances and new ideas in approaches and applications for pattern recognition. The 30 chapters selected in this book cover the major topics in pattern recognition. These chapters propose state-of-the-art approaches and cutting-edge research results. I could not thank enough to the contributions of the authors. This book would not have been possible without their support.
