This paper examines the theory of kernel Fisher discriminant analysis (KFD) in a Hilbert space and develops a two-phase KFD framework, i.e., kernel principal component analysis (KPCA) plus Fisher linear discriminant analysis (LDA). This framework provides novel insights into the nature of KFD. Based on this framework, the authors propose a complete kernel(More)
The extraction of discriminant features is the most fundamental and important problem in face recognition. This paper presents a method to extract optimal discriminant features for face images by using the uncorrelated discriminant transformation andKL expansion. Experiments on the ORL database and the NUST603 database have been performed. Experimental(More)
In this paper, the method of kernel Fisher discriminant (KFD) is analyzed and its nature is revealed, i.e., KFD is equivalent to kernel principal component analysis (KPCA) plus Fisher linear discriminant analysis (LDA). Based on this result, a more transparent KFD algorithm is proposed. That is, KPCA is ;rst performed and then LDA is used for a second(More)
Sparse representation has attracted great attention in the past few years. Sparse representation based classification (SRC) algorithm was developed and successfully used for classification. In this paper, a kernel sparse representation based classification (KSRC) algorithm is proposed. Samples are mapped into a high dimensional feature space first and then(More)
In the last few years, we have seen an upsurge of interest in content-based image retrieval (CBIR)—the selection of images from a collection via features extracted from images themselves. Often, a single image attribute may not have enough discriminative information for successful retrieval. On the other hand when multiple features are used, it is hard to(More)
