Abstract : The need to discriminate and classify spatial patterns is central to pattern recognition. The emergence of the field of computational statistics, made possible by recent advances in digital computing, has opened up a new way of approaching pattern recognition. In particular, it is no longer necessary to assume restrictive statistical models for spatially correlated data. It thus becomes important to develop model-free approaches to the description of spatial patterns. (AN)
