This paper identifies a novel feature space to address the problem of human face recognition from still images. This is based on the PCA space of the features extracted by a new multiresolution analysis tool called Fast Discrete Curvelet Transform. Curvelet Transform has better directional and edge representation abilities than widely used wavelet transform. Inspired by these attractive attributes of curvelets, we introduce the idea of decomposing images into its curvelet subbands and applying… CONTINUE READING
