Overview

This book considers classical and current theory and practice, of supervised, unsupervised and semi-supervised pattern recognition, to build a complete background for professionals and students of engineering. The authors, leading experts in the field of pattern recognition, have provided an up-to-date, self-contained volume encapsulating this wide spectrum of information. The very latest methods are incorporated in this edition: semi-supervised learning, combining clustering algorithms, and relevance feedback.

· Thoroughly developed to include many more worked examples to give greater understanding of the various methods and techniques

· Many more diagrams included—now in two color—to provide greater insight through visual presentation

· Matlab code of the most common methods are given at the end of each chapter.

· More Matlab code is available, together with an accompanying manual, via this site

· Latest hot topics included to further the reference value of the text including non-linear dimensionality reduction techniques, relevance feedback, semi-supervised learning, spectral clustering, combining clustering algorithms.

· An accompanying book with Matlab code of the most common methods and algorithms in the book, together with a descriptive summary, and solved examples including real-life data sets in imaging, and audio recognition. The companion book will be available separately or at a special packaged price (ISBN: 9780123744869).

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is an excellent reference for pattern recognition, machine learning, and data mining. It focuses on the problems of classification and clustering, the two most important general problems in these areas. This book has tremendous breadth and depth in its coverage of these topics; it is clearly the best book available on the topic today. The new edition is an excellent up-to-date revision of the book. I have especially enjoyed the new coverage provided in several topics, including new viewpoints on Support Vector Machines, and the complete in-depth coverage of new clustering methods. This is a standout characteristic of this book: the coverage of the topics is solid, deep, and principled throughout. The book is very successful in bringing out the important points in each technique, while containing lots of interesting examples to explain complicated concepts. I believe the section on dimensionality reduction is an excellent exposition on this topic, among the best available, and this is just one example. Combined with a coverage unique in its extend, this makes the book appropriate for use as a reference, as a textbook for upper level undergraduate or graduate classes, and for the practitioner that wants to apply these techniques in practice. I am a professor in Computer Science. Although pattern recognition is not my main focus, I work in the related fields of data mining and databases. I have used this book for my own research and, very successfully, as teaching material. I would strongly recommend this book to both the academic student and the professional."- Dimitrios Gunopoulos, University of California, Riverside, USA.

"I cut my pattern recognition teeth on a draft version of Duda and Hart (1973). Over subsequent decades, I consistently did two things: (i) recommended Duda and Hart as the best book available on pattern recognition; and (ii) wanted to write the next best book on this topic.

I stopped (i) when the first edition ofS. Theodoridis andK. Koutroumbas'book appeared, and it supplanted the need for (ii)

It was, and is, the best book that has been written on the subject since Duda and Hart's seminal original text. Buy it - you'll be happy you did." - Jim Bezdek, University of West Florida and Senior Fellow, U. of Melbourne (Australia).

"I consider the fourth edition of the book Pattern Recognition, by S. Theodoridis and K. Koutroumbas as the "Bible of Pattern Recognition"- Simon Haykin, McMaster University, Canada

"I have taught a graduate course on statistical pattern recognition for more than twenty five years during which I have used many books with different levels of satisfaction. Recently, I adopted the book by Theodoridis and Koutroumbas (4th edition) for my graduate course on statistical pattern recognition at University of Maryland. This course is taken by students from electrical engineering, computer science, linguistics and applied mathematics. The comprehensive book by Thedoridis and Koutroumbas covers both traditional and modern topics in statistical pattern recognition in a lucid manner, without compromising rigor. This book elegantly addresses the needs of graduate students from the different disciplines mentioned above. This is the only book that does justice to both supervised and unsupervised (clustering) techniques. Every student, researcher and instructor who is interested in any and all aspects of statistical pattern recognition will find this book extremely satisfying. I recommend it very highly." -Rama Chellappa, University of Maryland

"The book Pattern Recognition, by Profs. Sergios Theodoridis and Konstantinos Koutroumbas, has rapidly become the "bible" for teaching and learning the ins and outs of pattern recognition technology. In my own teaching, I have utilized the material in the first four chapters of the book (from basics to Bayes Decision Theory to Linear Classifiers and finally to Nonlinear Classifiers) in my class on fundamentals of speech recognition and have found the material to be presented in a clear and easily understandable manner, with excellent problems and ideas for projects. My students have all learned the basics of pattern recognition from this book and I highly recommend it to any serious student in this area." -Prof. Lawrence Rabiner
