Lecture Notes and Slides

The following hot links allow you to retrieve lecture notes (in PDF format). Links will fail if notes have not yet been posted.

These lecture notes are in a constant state of flux. I often update them after a lecture to add extra material and to correct errors. A class note will not be the final state until after I have finished with the particular topic. So come back and check for update often.

"Happy Face Notes" the ones that I intend to cover. "Sad Face Notes" the ones most likely will not be covered.

Notes are in PDF format. You need the Acrobat Reader to view them. You can download the Acrobat Reader for free here

Important Note: The notes contain many figures and graphs in the book “Pattern Recognition” by Duda, Hart, and Stork. The use is permitted for this particular course, but not for any other lecture or commercial use. Hence, I cannot grant permission of copying or duplicating these notes nor can I release the Powerpoint source files.
