In this paper, issues concerning feature patterns in terms of both feature composition and feature interdependence are discussed, and the concepts of typicality and diversity of an ensemble are formulated. The features of the specimens investigated are organized in a two-dimensional array, called an observation matrix, with each row vector representing the ordered set of features of a specimen. An algorithm (based upon the proposed measures and statistical screening) is implemented for… CONTINUE READING
