Pattern recognition is our mental activity in which we formulate, select, modify, and adjust our concepts or our frames of reference so that we can see a ``form'' in objects. We can tentatively formulate this viewpoint as the principle of minimum entropy (or entropy-like function). Different algorithms in clustering and pattern recognition are given new interpretations in the light of this unifying principle.
