The past decade has witnessed phenomenal growth in the fields of image processing and pattern recognition. To a large extent, these have been made possible because of the advent of low cost microcomputers and microelectronic imaging devices, and development of sophisticated image processing and pattern recognition algorithms that are capable of replacing human experts.


Boundary Sequence Wiener Filter Rotate Coordinate System Minimum Distance Classifier Uncorrelated Feature 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
