Abstract: In this paper, firstly, we introduce a feasible method formalising the calculation of information of prescription of Chinese medicine, and discuss quantified representation of attribute characteristics in prescription samples. Based on aforesaid method and representation, prescription samples are classified by pattern recognition system on the basis of SVM. The acquired results are satisfactory, which are also consistent with or close to the general cognition of principal theory of Chinese medicine. Our experience has shown that machine learning method is a feasible solution to mine thinking mode of Chinese medicine experts when they write prescriptions. This method of pattern recognition can be applied in many research fields of Chinese medicine.
