This feature of Applied Optics is dedicated to research in optical pattern-recognition techniques that utilize nonlinear devices and algorithms. Nonlinearities are employed in a variety of ways in optical pattern recognition and play an important role in both hardware implementation and software development for optical pattern-recognition systems.
