Abstract

This paper presents the recognition of Handwritten Hindi Numerals. The recognition is based on the modified exponential membership function fitted to the fuzzy sets derived from features consisting of normalized distances obtained using the Box approach. The exponential membership function is modified by two structural parameters that are estimated by optimizing the entropy subject to the attainment of membership function to unity. The optimization strategy used is the foraging model of E.coli bacteria. Two window sizes are used: one for ( , )and another for the rest of the numerals. Experimentation is carried out on a limited database of nearly 3500 samples. The overall recognition is found to be 96%.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
