Fingerprint matching is affected by the nonlinear distortion introduced in fingerprint impressions during the image acquisition process. This nonlinear deformation causes fingerprint features such as minutiae points and ridge curves to be distorted in a complex manner. In this paper we develop an average deformation model for a fingerprint impression (baseline impression) by observing its relative distortion with respect to several other impressions of the same finger. The deformation is… Expand
Fingerprint warping using ridge curve correspondences
TLDR
Results based on experimental data consisting of 1,600 fingerprints corresponding to 50 different fingers collected over a period of two weeks show that incorporating the proposed deformation model results in an improvement in the matching performance. Expand
Fingerprint Deformation Models Using Minutiae Locations and Orientations
TLDR
The estimated average deformation is used to pre-distort a template prior to matching it with a query image in a verification task and experimental results show that the use of minutiae locations and orientations to estimate the deformation leads to a more representative deformation model than using minUTiae locations only.

A Combined Radial Basis Function Model for Fingerprint Distortion
TLDR
A combined radial basis function (RBF) model, which separately builds rigid and nonrigid transformations, for attacking the distortion problem is proposed, which provides more accurate mapping function between a possible matched-pair. Expand
The utilization of a Taylor series-based transformation in fingerprint verification
TLDR
This paper shows that a simple transformation derived from a Taylor series expansion can be used in conjunction with a set of corresponding minutia points to improve the correspondence of finer fingerprint details within a fingerprint image. Expand
Fingerprint registration by maximization of mutual information
TLDR
A new algorithm for fingerprint registration using orientation field is proposed, which finds the correct alignment by maximization of mutual information between features extracted from orientation fields of template and input fingerprint images. Expand
Fingerprint registration by maximization of mutual information

Data Acquisition and Processing of 3-D Fingerprints
TLDR

TLDR
Several metrics for quantifying and visualizing linear and non-linear fingerprint deformations, and software tools to assist examiners in accounting for distortion in fingerprint comparisons are discussed. Expand
Averaging of Fingerprint Template with Respect to Elastic Deformations
The paper describes a technique of generation of an “undeformed”, i.e. averaged with respect to elastic deformations, fingerprint template. We offer to calculate the average “undeformed” fingerprintExpand
