Face recognition based on Second Generation of Curvelet Transform and Kernel Principal Component Analysis

A new face recognition method is proposed by adopting the Second Generation of Curvelet Transform (SGCT) and Kernel Principal Component Analysis (KPCA). Based on KPCA, the face recognition algorithm can extract nonlinear image features and show better performance under the conditions of small sample training. However, the disadvantage of KPCA is the image… CONTINUE READING
