The Subspace Pattern Recognition Method (SPRM) is a statistical method where each class is represented by a separate subspace. There are a number of variants to it including the Averaged Learning Subspace Method (ALSM). The decision surfaces in all these methods are quadratic. In some applications, we may require decision surfaces which are more nonlinear in nature. In this paper, we have proposed the use of more than one subspace (cluster) in the representation of the classes in the subspace methods of pattern recognition. By keeping the number of principal components in all the clusters the same, this model allows for a piecewise linear approximation of the decision surfaces. We have used this model to extend both the SPRM and the ALSM to obtain the Extended SPRM and the Extended ALSM, respectively. We have investigated the use of a dynamic clustering algorithm for the assignment of patterns to different clusters as opposed to a random assignment. We have conducted experiments on three data sets including a 192-dimensional large character data set. The results indicate that the proposed methods have the potential to approximate any decision surface, and can considerably improve the classification accuracy on the test sets.
