Abstract : The present paper is concerned mainly with the aspect of information compression, which is only part of the process of recognition. The problem of zoning (division of the space into disjoint volumes corresponding to classes) and the problem of decision making (such as the Bayesian algorithm) require, among others, careful study in connection with classification and recognition, but are not included in this paper.
