A technique used in the computer-based recognition of structure or objects. In a hierarchical synthesis recognition system, primitive or simpler features are recognised first, and then joined together to recognise larger objects in a bottom-up manner. For example, one might recognise the handle and bowl of a coffee cup first, and then verify that these were in positions compatible with being part of the same cup. This form of matching is often used as part of a Model-based Vision system.
