Dynamic Pattern Recognition of Coordinated Biological Motion

  • Hermann Haken
Part of the Springer Series in Synergetics book series (SSSYN, volume 50)


So far in this book we have been concerned with static patterns. As humans, we may also recognize patterns of movement such as walking and trotting of horses. This leads us to ask whether movement patterns can also be recognized by the synergetic computer.
