Abstract: 
Boundaries of two-dimensional objects are divided into segments, each being a straight line or an arc. Characteristics of each segment which can be used for the recognition of the object are specified. An algorithm is proposed for a formal description and classification of connected areas. A criterion is suggested for the of recognition objects it is based on the boundary structure analysis.
