Object Recognition with the HOSVD of the Multi-model Space-Variant Pattern Tensors

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 6854)


The paper presents a framework for object recognition with the multi- model space-variant approach in the log-polar domain built into the multilinear tensor classifier. Thanks to this the method allows recognition of rotated and/or scaled objects taking advantage of the foveal and peripheral information. Recognition is done in the multilinear subspaces obtained after the higher-order singular value decomposition of the pattern tensor. The experiments show high accuracy and robustness of the proposed method.
