Application of Approximate Equality for Reduction of Feature Vector Dimension 26-40
Reduction of feature vector dimension is a problem of selecting the most informative features from an information system. Using rough set theory we can reduce the feature vector dimension when all the attribute values are crisp or discrete.

Boosting Shape Classifiers Accuracy by Considering the Inverse Shape 41-54
Many techniques exist for describing shapes. These techniques almost exclusively consider the contour or the inside of the shape; the major problem for describing the outside of a shape, or inverse shape, being that it has an infinite extension.

Extending the K-Means Clustering Algorithm to Improve the Compactness of the Clusters 61-73
Clustering is a popular method essentially applied to data analysis, data mining, vector quantization and data compression. The most widely used clustering algorithm, which belongs to the group of partitioning algorithms, is the k-means.
