##### 3336 Arabic Character Recognition Using Regression Curves with the Expectation Maximization Algorithm

**Authors:**
Abdullah A. AlShaher

**Abstract:**

^{nd}order of polynomials to model shapes within a training set. To estimate the regression models, we need to extract the required coefficients which describe the variations for a set of shape class. Hence, a least square method is used to estimate such modes. We then proceed by training these coefficients using the apparatus Expectation Maximization algorithm. Recognition is carried out by finding the least error landmarks displacement with respect to the model curves. Handwritten isolated Arabic characters are used to evaluate our approach.
