A.V. Savchenko. Statistical pattern recognition based on probabilistic neural network with homogeneity testing


Statistical pattern recognition was reduced to the hypothesis test for homogeneity. The probabilistic neural network (PNN) modification was proposed to achieve its optimal decision in terms of minimum Bayes-risk. The comparative analysis' results of the proposed modification with an original PNN were presented in a problem of automatic author identification.


statistical pattern recognition, probabilistic neural network, hypothesis test for samples homogeneity, Kullback-Leibler minimum information discrimination principle.

PP. 45-56.
