Extracting reliable fingerprint orientation over low quality fingerprints is still a challenging problem. In this paper, we analyze the distribution of divergence and curl of fingerprint orientation vector field. Then a div-curl regularization model is proposed to minimize the combination of weighted divergence, curl and data fidelity term. This model yields a new nonlinear partial differential equation (PDE) for orientation regularization. The equation has an adaptive diffusivity depending on… CONTINUE READING
