Functional data are getting prevalent in many research and industrial fields in recent decades. It is often of interest to classify functional data properly.  A number of supervised classification methods have been proposed in the literature.  In this thesis, I propose and study three new classifiers for supervised classification for functional data, including a supervised classification method based on functional cosine similarity, a new k-nearest neighbour classifier, and an inverse distance based classifier.   Intensive simulation studies and a number of real functional data examples are conducted to demonstrate and illustrate the good performance of the three new functional classifiers via comparing them against  several existing competitors.
