Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"...a useful reference for all biometric security professionals and researchers. The four coauthors have a distinguished combination of academic and professional experience....Overall, readers will be pleased with the style and substance of this book." -Computing Reviews"This is a comprehensive reviews of its topic . . The thoroughness of the treatment of biometric methods is not obvious from the title. This feature will make the book particularly valuable in some robotics contexts. . The intended audience includes researchers, practicing engineers, and students . . The book is suggested as a reference book for a graduate course on biometrics. The material is clearly presented . . This will certainly be a standard reference work in its field." (Alex M. Andrew, Robotica, Vol. 22, 2004)"The book is the first reference on automatic fingerprint recognition and provides an in-depth survey of the fingerprint state-of-the-art, presenting the most recent advances in fingerprints . . is ideally suited to researchers and students in biometrics, pattern recognition, forensics, image processing, and computer vision. In addition, it will be essential to developers of biometric solutions, biometric users . as well as to project managers and system integrators and administrators involved in the analysis, design, and management of finger-print-based biometric systems."
