Abstract : Primary attention was directed to the development of computer systems to produce patterns which simulate aspects of patterns in practical pattern identification tasks, particularly the variability within identification classes. Several pattern simulation systems are described and illustrative output is presented. Other methodological aspects of the research program are described, including investigation of certitude ratings and posterior probabilities as responses in pattern identification. Empirical and theoretical aspects of the research are also discussed; the development and testing of a computer program to simulate human performance in a pattern identification task is noted and further exploration of systems for image enhancement and analysis are described and illustrated.
