About this Book

An in-depth examination of the cutting edge of biometrics

This book fills a gap in the literature by detailing the recent advances and emerging theories, methods, and applications of biometric systems in a variety of infrastructures. Edited by a panel of experts, it provides comprehensive coverage of:

  • Multilinear discriminant analysis for biometric signal recognition
  • Biometric identity authentication techniques based on neural networks
  • Multimodal biometrics and design of classifiers for biometric fusion
  • Feature selection and facial aging modeling for face recognition
  • Geometrical and statistical models for video-based face authentication
  • Near-infrared and 3D face recognition
  • Recognition based on fingerprints and 3D hand geometry
  • Iris recognition and ECG-based biometrics
  • Online signature-based authentication
  • Identification based on gait
  • Information theory approaches to biometrics
  • Biologically inspired methods and biometric encryption
  • Biometrics based on electroencephalography and event-related potentials

Biometrics: Theory, Methods, and Applications is an indispensable resource for researchers, security experts, policymakers, engineers, and graduate students.
