The Handbook of Fingerprint Recognition is written by the foremost leading international researchers in the field of biometrics and fingerprint recognition. The book contains a total of nine chapters, namely 1) Introduction, 2) Fingerprint Sensing, 3) Fingerprint Analysis and Representation, 4) Fingerprint Matching, 5) Fingerprint Classification and Indexing, 6) Synthetic Fingerprint Generation, 7) Multimodal Biometrics Systems, 8) Fingerprint Individuality, and 9) Securing Fingerprint Systems. Three of the chapters (1, 2, and 9) require no prior background and appeals to a wider audience including system integrators and security managers, but the rest of the core chapters require some familiarity with image/signal processing methods. The breadth of this book is phenomenal. For example, Chapter 4 covers not only the popular minutiae-based fingerprint matching algorithms but also correlation-based and various ridge-feature based fingerprint matching algorithms.
A DVD that contains all the fingerprint databases used in Fingerprint Verification Competition in year 2000 and 2002 is included with the book and is a valuable resource in testing your fingerprint recognition algorithms, since data collection is such an expensive process. A demo version of a synthetic fingerprint generator software (described in Chapter 6) is also included. You can use this software to create your own fingerprint databases at no cost. The book also contains an exhaustive bibliography, which makes it a great reference book.
Handbook of Fingerprint Recognition is the most comprehensive single source of information on biometrics and fingerprint recognition. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to gain a technical understanding of this area - from the curious to the experts.
This book contains a plethora of information on every aspect of fingerprint recognition technology - introduction to biometrics and fingerprints, fingerprint sensing devices, feature extraction, matching, classification, synthetic fingerprint generation, multimodal systems, secure design, fingerprint individuality - you name it. The DVD accompanying this book will save you a lot of money and trouble of collecting your own data to test your algorithms.
The authors of this book - Davide Maltoni, Dario Maio, Salil Prabhakar, and Anil K. Jain - are undoubtedly some of the most well known and respected experts in the world on the topic of fingerprint recognition. It is no surprise that such extraordinary researchers have produced such an exceptional masterpiece.
Whether you are an inventor, developer, practitioner, forensic specialist, or system manager in this field looking for an excellent reference or just a novice looking for basic information on biometrics and fingerprint recognition technology, you must read this outstanding book.
The elaborate bibliography is a testimony to the authors' comprehensive treatment of the subject. The illustrations and tables sprinkled throughout the book aid in the better understanding of the concepts being discussed.
I would recommend this book for both researchers and practitioners alike. Happy reading!
