The success gained by applying bit-plane decomposition methods to handwriting recognition have been demonstrated in our previous work [1,2]. In this paper we address the relationship between the diversity and the improvements obtained by applying multiple combinations of various layers. These layers are obtained by applying a method based on an n-tuple based classification system, namely, the Random Decomposition Technique proposed in [1]. We investigate 5 combination methods and 9 diversity measures using data extracted from the NIST[16] database. Results presented in this paper support the use of the bit-plane decomposition approach as a diversification method. Strong correlation was found between both the accuracy and the improvements and the diversity measures in the majority of the combination methods investigated.
