Kernel Construction for Face Recognition



Face recognition and its relative research have become the very active research topics in recent years due to its wide applications. An excellent face recognition algorithm should sufficiently consider the following two issues: what features are used to represent a face image and how to classify a new face image based on this representation. So the facial feature extraction plays an important role in face recognition.
