FAST HAAR TRANSFORM BASED FEATURE EXTRACTION FOR MULTIMODAL BIOMETRIC SYSTEM ABSTRACT In many realworld applications, unimodal biometric systems often face signiﬁcant limitations due to sensitivity to noise, interclass variability, data quality, non universality, and other factors. Attempting to improve the performance of individual matchers in such situations may not prove to be highly effective. Multibiometric systems seek to alleviate some of these problems by providing multiple pieces of evidence of the same identity. These systems help achieve an increase in performance that may not be possible using a singlebiometric indicator. In this project we use multimodal biometric fast recognition method. Subspace learning is the process of ﬁnding a proper feature subspace and then projecting highdimensional data onto the learned lowdimensional subspace. The projection operation requires many ﬂoatingpoint multiplications and additions, which makes the projection process computationally expensive. To tackle this problem, this project proposes two simplebuteffective fast subspace learning and image projection methods, fast Haar transform (FHT) based principal component analysis. The advantages of this methods result from employing both the FHT for subspace learning and the integral vector for feature extraction. Experimental results on face,iris and fingerprint databases demonstrated their effectiveness and efficiency.

1.INTRODUCTION
Software and computer systems are recognized as a subset of simulated intelligent behaviors of human beings described by programmed instructive information. According to Wang, computing methodologies and technologies are developed to extend human capability, reachability, persistency, memory, and information processing speed. Biometric information system is one of the ﬁnest examples of computer system that tries to imitate the decisions that humans make in their everyday life, speciﬁcally concerning people identiﬁcation and matching tasks. In this quest, the biometric systems evolved from simple singlefeaturebased models to a complex decisionmaking mechanism that utilize artiﬁcial intelligence, neural networks, complex decision making schemes, and multiple biometric parameters extracted and combined in an intelligent way. The main goal and contribution of this Project is to present a comprehensive analysis of various biometric fusion techniques in combination with advanced biometric feature extraction mechanisms that improve the performance of the biometric information system in the challenging and not resolved problem of people identiﬁcation. A biometric identiﬁcation (matching) system is an automatic pattern recognition system that recognizes a person by determining the authenticity of a speciﬁc physiological and/or behavioral characteristic (biometric) possessed by that person. Physiological biometric identiﬁers include ﬁngerprints, hand...

1. Introduction
Transform coding constitutes an integral component of contemporary image/video processing
applications. Transform coding relies on the premise that pixels in an image exhibit a certain
level of correlation with their neighboring pixels. Similarly in a video transmission system,
adjacent pixels in consecutive frames2 show very high correlation. Consequently, these
correlations can be exploited to predict the value of a pixel from its respective neighbors. A
transformation is, therefore, defined to map this spatial (correlated) data into transformed
(uncorrelated) coefficients. Clearly, the transformation should utilize the fact that the information
content of an individual pixel is relatively small i.e., to a large extent visual contribution of a
pixel can be predicted using its neighbors.
A typical image/video transmission system is outlined in Figure 1. The objective of the source
encoder is to...

Abstract In this note we make a critical comparison of some matlab programs for the digital computation of the fractional Fourier transform that are freely available and we describe our own implementation that ﬁlters the best out of the existing ones. Two types of transforms are considered: First the fast approximate fractional Fourier transform algorithm for which two algorithms are available. The method is described in H.M. Ozaktas, M.A. Kutay, and G. Bozda˘i. Digital computation of the fractional Fourier transform. g IEEE Trans. Signal Process., 44:2141–2150, 1996. There are two implementations: one is written by A.M. Kutay the other is part of package written by J. O’Neill. Secondly the discrete fractional Fourier transform algorithm described in the master thesis C. Candan. The discrete fractional Fourier transform, ¸ Bilkent Univ., 1998 and an algorithm described by S.C. Pei, M.H. Yeh, and C.C Tseng: Digital fractional Fourier transform based on orthogonal projections IEEE Trans. Signal Process., 47:1335–1348, 1999. Key words: Fractional Fourier transform

which is the convolution of x(t) with 1/π t,

(2.172)
if we take the FT of this convolution,

therefore
Xh (ω ) = − jX (ω )sgn(ω )
jXh (ω ) = X (ω )sgn(ω )
(2.177)
From the deﬁnition of the Hilbert transform and its FT, we may infer the following properties.
1. The function and its Hilbert transform have the same magnitude spectrum. This property
may inferred from the following facts.
x(t) ⇔ X (ω )
xh (t) ⇔ − jsgn(ω )X (ω )
(2.178)
therefore,
Xh (ω ) = − jsgn(ω )X (ω )
=  − jsgn(ω )X (ω )
= X (ω )
2. For a real time function, if we pass it through a −π /2 phase shifter, the output of the ﬁlter
is the Hilbert transform of the input. Referring to Figure 2.46 (a), x(t) is the input to the
phase shifter whose output is y(t). The phase shifter only has an effect on the phase, while...
