From the reviews: "This interesting book provides a concise and simple exposition of principal topics in pattern recognition using an algorithmic approach, and is intended mainly for undergraduate and postgraduate students. ... An application to handwritten digit recognition is described at the end of the book. Many examples and exercises are proposed to make the treatment clear. A `further reading' section and a bibliography are presented at the end of each chapter." (Patrizio Frosini, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1238, 2012)
