The topics of fingerprint classification, indexing, and retrieval have been studied extensively in the past decades. One problem faced by researchers is that in all publicly available fingerprint databases, only a few fingerprint samples from each individual are available for training and testing, making it inappropriate to use sophisticated statistical methods for recognition. Hence most of the previous works resorted to simple k-nearest neighbor (k-NN) classification. However, the k-NN… CONTINUE READING
