Abstract : A syntax-directed approach is proposed for the extraction of pattern features from one-dimensional spatial or temporal series of events. The approach is offered as a synthesis of formal and ad hoc methods. Existing techniques in the parsing of formal languages are shown to apply to the problem of analyzing series which exhibit certain structure. An example is given detailing this approach as applied to the recognition of carotid pulse waves. (Author)
