Abstract?A more general adaptive procedure for determining linear or piecewise linear discriminant functions for multiclass pattern classification is proposed. The adaptive procedure is a many-pattern or group-pattern adaptation. The training sequence consists of groups of vectors in matrix form instead of single vectors. The convergence proof shows that this procedure terminates in a finite number of adaptions if the solution exists. A necessary and suffcient condition is developed for testing the linear separability of each subset of (d + 1) samples. Furthermore, the proposed procedure can be implemented with the addition of only a little complexity to existing systems. Computer simulations indecate satisfactory results.
