This book will serve as a handbook for students, researchers and practitioners in the area of automatic (computer) face recognition and inspire some future research ideas by identifying potential research directions. Within each chapter the reader will be given an overview of background information on the subject at hand and in many cases a description of the authors' original proposed solution. The chapters should give the reader a general idea where the current research efforts are heading, both within the face recognition area itself and in interdisciplinary approaches.

The book on computer vision - the construction of explicit, meaningful descriptions of physical objects from images. Parts of the book assume some mathematical and computing background, but mainly mathematical rigor takes a backseat to concepts.

Visual Reconstruction presents a unified and highly original approach to the treatment of continuity in vision. The book introduces two new concepts: the weak continuity constraint and the graduated nonconvexity algorithm.

The book on computer vision which solves the problem of the interpretation of line drawings and answers many other questions regarding the errors in the placement of lines in the images. Sugihara presents a mechanism that mimics human perception.

This modern treatment of computer vision focuses on learning and inference in probabilistic models as a unifying theme. It shows how to use data to learn the relationships between the observed image data and the aspects that we wish to estimate.
