In this paper, a method for off-line writer identification is presented, using the contours of fragmented connected components in mixed-style handwritten samples of limited size. The writer is considered to characterized by a stochastic pattern generator, producing a family of character fragments (fraglets). Using a codebook of such fraglets from an independent training set, the probability distribution of fraglet contours was computed for an independent test set. Results revealed a high… CONTINUE READING
