Abstract

This letter presents a novel multimodal biometric recognition algorithm based on complex kernel principle component analysis (CKPCA). CKPCA generalizes kernel principle component analysis (KPCA) method for complex field to perform feature fusion and classification. Iris and face are used as two distinct biometric modals to test our algorithm. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm achieves much better performance than other conventional multimodal biometric algorithms.
