Paper Title:
A Face Recognition Algorithm Based on Block PCA and Wavelet Transform
  Abstract

As the most successful method of linear distinguish, principal component analysis(PCA) method is widely used in identify areas, such as face recognition. But traditional PCA is influenced by light conditions, facial expression and it extracts the global features of the image, so the recognition rate is not very high. In order to improve more accurately identify facial features and extract local features which account for a larger contribution to the identification. This paper brings up a method of a block face recognition based on wavelet transform (WT-BPCA). In the algorithm, face images are done two-dimensional wavelet decomposition, then from which extract low frequency sub-images. According to different face area makes different contribution to recognition, we use sub-block PCA method. According to the contribution of the block recognition results generate weighting factors, the face recognition rate based on PCA is effectively improved. Finally we construct classification to recognite. Do experiments in the ORL face database. Results show that this method is superior to the method of the traditional PCA.
