Progress in Pattern Recognition, Volume 1 focuses on the processes, techniques, and approaches involved in pattern recognition, including conceptual clustering, cross-correlation, syntax, software, data structures, and distance transforms.

The selection first tackles progress in syntactic pattern recognition and clustering objects into classes characterized by conjunctive concepts. Discussions focus on an overview of clustering problems, conjunctive conceptual clustering, primitive selection and pattern grammars, high dimensional grammars for pattern description, syntactic pattern recognition using stochastic languages, and syntactic approach to shape and texture analysis. The text then elaborates on database representations in hierarchical scene analysis and medium level vision.

The book examines image processing software and analysis and synthesis of image patterns by spatial interaction models. Topics include synopsis of discrete spatial interaction models, nonrecursive models over infinite lattices, finite lattice models, and the MSFC image processing package. The text also reviews the mathematical aspects of image reconstruction from projection and recognition of stereo-image cross-correlation errors.

The selection is a highly recommended source of data for researchers interested in the process of pattern recognition.
