<p>In this paper, we present a new upper bound on the minimum probability of error of Bayesian decision systems for statistical pattern recognition. This new bound is continuous everywhere and is shown to be tighter than several existing bounds such as the Bhattacharyya and the Bayesian bounds. Numerical results are also presented.</p>
