Abstract.We discuss the curvature function in the recognition of people's handwriting by an intelligent writing pad. We address the questions of what is to be recorded, how to dissolve a parametric curve into smooth segments, and how to recognize a smooth segment using a standardized curvature function. We also examine the relevant mathematical aspects of the standardized curvature function.
