Paper Abstract

Pattern recognition theory is introduced to perform rough surface classification. The light intensity distribution scattered from a rough surface is defined as the pattern vector of the rough surface. Using the Karhunen-Loeve transformation, the pattern vector is transformed into a feature vector for classification. To achieve a maximum separability, a modified method is proposed. The feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated by computer simulation results.
