The Mahalanobis Distance in Character Recognition Authored by Dan Frey 31 July 98 This sheet explores the use of the Mahalanobis Distance in character recognition. It defines a letters A, B, C, and D. It creates a population of distorted letters to train a classifier. It creates a test population of letters to test the classifier. It allows you to compete against the Mahalanobis classifier. ORIGIN := 1 Every matrix and vector in this sheet will begin with index number 1. Here are the Canonical letters A B C and D defined as matrices of 1s and 0s 0 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 1 0 0 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 1 0 0 1 0 1 0 1 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 A := 1 0 0 0 1 B := 1 1 1 1 0 C := 1 0 0 0 0 D := 1 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 0 0 1 1 1 0 0 0 1 1 0 0 0 1 Ł 1 0 0 0 1 ł Ł 1 1 1 1 0 ł Ł 0 1 1 1 0 ł Ł 1 1 1 1 0 ł Stretch the letters out into a vector of "features". k := 1 .. 25 Alin k := A k + 5 - 5 ceil k , ceil k Blin k := B k + 5 - 5 ceil k , ceil k Ł 5 ł Ł 5 ł Ł 5 ł Ł 5 ł Clin k := C k + 5 - 5 ceil k , ceil k Dlin k := D k + 5 - 5 ceil k , ceil k Ł 5 ł Ł 5 ł Ł 5 ł Ł 5 ł Reverse the letters.
