221. Fingerprint Matching Using Distortion Tolerant Filters
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 2/13/2003
Authors: Craig I Watson, D P Casasent
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to discuss the use of distortion tolerant filters to improve the performance of fingerprint correlation matching. Previous work has shown that correlation matching of fingerprints is susceptible to larger false alarm r ...

222. Dependence Characteristics of Face Recognition Algorithms
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 1/1/2002
Authors: Andrew L Rukhin, Patrick J Grother, P Jonathon Phillips, Stefan D Leigh, E M Newton, Nathanael A Heckert
Abstract: Nonparametric statistics for quantifying dependence between the output rankings of face recognition algorithms are described. Analysis of the archived results of a large face recognition study shows that even the better algorithms exhibit significan ...

227. Modulation Transfer Function Measurement Method for Electrically-Addressed Spatial Light Modulators
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 10/1/2001
Authors: Patrick J Grother, D P Casasent
Abstract: The modulation transfer function (MTF) using amplitude modulation (mA) data is a vital coherent optical performance measure for a spatial light modulator (SLM). A new image plane MTFA (amplitude MTF) measurement method is presented for electrically- ...
