Abstract : In this manuscript some very basic ideas of important consequence are discussed. These ideas are important for any practicing engineer in pattern recognition. The topics include equivalent classifier, dimensionality reduction, fusion of classifier, time varying statistics, etc. Throughout this presentation, it is assumed that the reader is familiar with the mechanics of constructing discriminant, selecting features and other related properties. Therefore no attempt is made to make this presentation are considered 'obvious' in standard books written on the subject of pattern recognition. It is our belief that the readers of this manuscript will benefit considerable by giving some time to these 'obvious' results; mainly because the obvious results are sometimes very confuding results.
