# Group integration techniques in pattern analysis - a kernel view

@inproceedings{Reisert2008GroupIT, title={Group integration techniques in pattern analysis - a kernel view}, author={Marco Reisert}, booktitle={Ausgezeichnete Informatikdissertationen}, year={2008} }

Pattern analysis deals with the problem of characterizing a nd analyzing relations in data in an automated way. A quite important issue during the design p rocess of such algorithms is the incorporation of prior knownledge; knowledge that is related to all information about the problem available in addition to the training data . This thesis is about a certain kind of prior knowledge: we assume to know that the data does n t change its meaning under certain transformations, that is, the pattern… Expand
