Computational pattern recognition based on logic

F. Mulargia
Computational pattern recognition is an invaluable tool in understanding the phenomenology of complex processes and represents the first step towards their effective physical modelling. So far its practical applications have been rather limited, but its potential appears great in all the fields characterized by a behaviour complex enough to defy intuition. We discuss in detail pattern recognition algorithms of the "logic" type, which proved effective in a number of diverse fields.
