Feature extraction has been recognized as a useful technique for pattern recognition. Feature extraction is accomplished by constructing a mapping from the measurement space to a feature space. Often, the mapping is chosen from an arbitrarily specified parametric family by optimizing the parameters with respect to a separability criterion.
