A large number of algorithms have been developed for classification and recognition. These algorithms can be divided into three major paradigms: statistical pattern recognition, neural networks, and model-based vision. Neural networks embody an especially rich field of approaches based on a variety of architectures, learning mechanisms, biological and algorithmic motivations, and application areas. Mathematical analysis of these approaches and paradigms reveals that there are only a few computational concepts permeating all the diverse approaches and serving as a basis for all paradigms and algorithms for classification and recognition.
These basic computational concepts are reviewed in this paper with the purposes of (i) providing a mathematical continuity to seemingly disparate techniques, (ii) establishing basic mathematical limitations on applicability of existing techniques, (iii) discerning fundamental questions facing the classification field, and (iv) searching for directions in which answers to these questions may be found.
