Syntactic pattern recognition techniques are applied to the analysis of one-dimensional seismic traces and two-dimensional seismograms for the detection of bright spots. The calculation between error probability and Levenshtein distance is proposed. The system for two-dimensional seismic analysis includes three kinds of string distance computation to test the continuity of a bright spot pattern.
