statistical pattern recognition,
intellectual data mining.

Subject:

Research of statistical stability of pattern classifiers in the condition of small sample size. Studying the probabilistic properties of decision functions for discrete recognition problem; finding the dependences between sample size, number of values of discrete characteristics, empirical error and the expected probability of error. Developing of algorithms for decision trees construction in problems of pattern recognition, clustering, regression analysis, time series analysis. Application of the developed data mining methods in applied researches.
