3
Character Recognition – Preprocessing Normalization The scanned characters first are normalized to fill out a 320×400 grid in order to get comparable patterns. Then noisy pixels are eliminated. After noise elimination, the resulting arrays on the 320×400 grid are mapped on a 20×25 grid.

4
Character Recognition – Preprocessing Elimination of Noisy Pixels Algorithms are based on parallel array grammars eliminate pixel if number of pixels in the 8- neighbourhood = 0, iterate this algorithm until no more changes

5
Character Recognition – Preprocessing Thinning Algorithms are based on parallel array grammars. Reduction to a unitary skeleton (e.g., J. H. Sossa, An improved parallel algorithm for thinning digital patterns, Pattern Recognition Letters 10 (1989), pp. 77-80).

Bounded Parallelism

14
Bounded Parallelism/Prescribed Teams array productions in team are applied in parallel

15
Bounded Parallelism/Prescribed Teams derivation modes array productions in team are applied in parallel; the teams themselves may be applied in different derivation modes (variants of co-operation as in co-operating distributed grammar systems): =k, >k,

16
Bounded Parallelism/Prescribed Teams finite index restriction/pattern analysis Finite index restriction: by applying the array productions of a team in parallel, all non-terminal symbols in the current sentential form must be affected Analysis of a given pattern: whenever a terminal symbol is generated, it must coincide with the symbol in the pattern (character) to be analysed

17
Syntactic Pattern Analysis – Distance from Ideal Cluster ● deviation of lines ● gaps in lines ● superfluous/missing lines ● superfluous (remaining) pixels During the analysis of a given pattern, its distance from the ideal cluster of arrays representing a specific character is computed. Features to be taken into account:

LNCS 1451, Springer, Berlin, 1998, 282-291.

19
k-head finite automata The k heads in a k-head finite array automaton are the counterparts of the k non-terminal symbols in array grammars with prescribed teams and finite index. In each step, every head has to move. The automaton has a „head sensing ability“, i.e., two heads can never occupy the same position. Moreover, a position carrying a terminal symbol in the array to be parsed can only be visited once by one of the k heads (and then is marked as „forbidden position“ for the rest of the parsing procedure).

LNCS 1876, Springer, Berlin, 2000, 67-76.

22
Hybrid Systems Pre-selection by neural network (for a given pattern, only a few pre-selected array grammars have to analyse it) Application of teams controlled by additional mechanism (programmed, matrix) Look-ahead instead of inefficient backtracking (larger neighbourhoods)

24
Regulated Array Grammars of Finite Index Restricted by the finite index condition, with the control mechanisms of using variants of context- fee array productions in prescibed teams, matrices or a control graph, the corresponding families of generated array languages coincide, even in the appearance checking case. The corresponding models of k- head automata accept the same families of array languages, too. With respect to k, we obtain infinite hierarchies for dimensions n > 1.
