Facial images with high dimension often belong to a manifold of intrinsically low dimension. Subspace methods utilize different algorithms to extract and analyze the underlying manifold for face recognition. Isomap is a recently proposed algorithm for manifold learning and nonlinear dimensionality reduction. However, since the Isomap is developed based on minimizing the reconstruction error with multi-dimensional scaling, it may not be optimal from classification viewpoint. In this paper, an… CONTINUE READING
