Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A handwritten character recognition experiment using a monotonic and continuous two-dimensional warping algorithm is reported. This warping algorithm is based on dynamic programming and searches for the optimal pixel-to-pixel mapping between given two images subject to two-dimensional monotonicity and continuity constraints. Experimental comparisons with rigid matching and local perturbation show the performance superiority of the monotonic and continuous warping in character recognition.
