Intelligent Biometric Techniques in Fingerprint and Face Recognition

    The tremendous world-wide interest in intelligent biometric techniques in fingerprint and face recognition is fueled by the myriad of potential applications, including banking and security systems, and limited only by the imaginations of scientists and engineers. This growing interest poses new challenges to the fields of expert systems, neural networks, fuzzy systems, and evolutionary computing, which offer the advantages of learning abilities and human-like behavior. Authored by a panel of international experts, this book presents a thorough treatment of established and emerging applications and techniques relevant to this field.
