A lyapunov theory-based neural network approach for face recognition
|Ang, L. and Lim, H. and Seng, K. and Chin, S. 2009. A lyapunov theory-based neural network approach for face recognition. In Intelligent Systems for Automated Learning and Adaptation: Emerging Trends and Applications, 23-48.
This chapter presents a new face recognition system comprising of feature extraction and the Lyapunov theory-based neural network. It first gives the definition of face recognition which can be broadly divided into (i) feature-based approaches, and (ii) holistic approaches. A general review of both approaches will be given in the chapter. Face features extraction techniques including Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Fisher's Linear Discriminant (FLD) are discussed. Multilayered neural network (MLNN) and Radial Basis Function neural network (RBF NN) will be reviewed. Two Lyapunov theory-based neural classifiers: (i) Lyapunov theory-based RBF NN, and (ii) Lyapunov theory-based MLNN classifiers are designed based on the Lyapunov stability theory. The design details will be discussed in the chapter. Experiments are performed on two benchmark databases, ORL and Yale. Comparisons with some of the existing conventional techniques are given. Simulation results have shown good performance for face recognition using the Lyapunov theory-based neural network systems. © 2010, IGI Global.
