Abstract

In this paper, we propose a novel image projection technique for face recognition applications based on Fisher Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA). The projection is performed through a couple subspace analysis for overcoming the “small sample size” problem. Also, weighted pairwise discriminant hyperplanes are used in order to provide a more accurate discriminant decision than that produced by the conventional LDA. The proposed technique has been successfully tested on three face databases. Experimental results indicate that the proposed algorithm outperforms the conventional algorithms.
