Abstract

Biometrics is the study of methods for uniquely recognizing humans based on one or more intrinsic physical or behavioral traits. After decades of research activities, biometrics, as a recognized scientific discipline, has advanced considerably both in practical technology and theoretical discovery to meet the increasing need of biometric deployments. In this book, the editors provide both a concise and accessible introduction to the field as well as a detailed coverage on the unique research problems with their solutions in a wide spectrum of biometrics research ranging from voice, face, fingerprint, iris, handwriting, human behavior to multimodal biometrics. The contributions also present the pioneering efforts and state-of-the-art results, with special focus on practical issues concerning system development. This book is a valuable reference for established researchers and it also gives an excellent introduction for beginners to understand the challenges.
