Abstract : An algorithm is presented for determining decision boundaries based on learning samples in a two-category pattern recognition problem. It is shown that the algorithm yields results which converge in probability to the optimal results (in the sense of minimum probability of error). A confidence bound for the probability of error is obtained. (Author)
