Face recognition is an important and challenging field in computer vision. [] Key Method Various symmetrization techniques are used for preprocessing the image in order to handle bad illumination and face alignment problem. We used Eigenface approach for face recognition. Eigenfaces are eigenvectors of covariance matrix, representing given image space. Any new face image can then be represented as a linear combination of these Eigenfaces. This makes it easier to match any two given images and thus face…

Side View Face Identification Based on Wavelet and Random Forest
A subset selection method that increases the number of training samples and allows subsets to preserve the global information is presented, which takes the advantage of wavelet's localization property in both frequency and spatial domains.


A feature based approach to face recognition
A feature-based approach to face recognition in which the features are derived from the intensity data without assuming any knowledge of the face structure is presented. The feature extraction model
Eigenfaces for Recognition
A near-real-time computer system that can locate and track a subject's head, and then recognize the person by comparing characteristics of the face to those of known individuals, and that is easy to implement using a neural network architecture.

Feature extraction from faces using deformable templates
De deformable templates are illustrated by showing their ability for tracking features and altering parameter values to minimize the energy function, thereby deforming itself to find the best fit.

These studies form a foundation for continuing research on real-time man-machine interaction for computer classification and identification of multidimensional vectors specified by noisy components.
How Faces Differ—A New Comparative Technique
It can be argued that the process of recognising faces progresses in two stages: first, the realisation that a perceived image contains patterns that may most reasonably be interpreted as forming a
