Face image matching using fractal dimension

By Abbas Kouzani, Fangpo He and Karl Sammut


A new method is presented in this paper for calculating the correspondence between two face images on a pixel by pixel basis. The concept of fractal dimension is used to develop the proposed non-parametric area-based image matching method which achieves a higher proportion of matched pixels for face images than some well-known methods
