Biometrics is a recognition technology that uses the unique behavioral and physiological traits of the human body as identifiers. The fingerprint is one of the oldest and most widely used forms of biometric identifiers. In this thesis, an automatic fingerprint identification system designed by a previous Electrical Engineering graduate student at The University of Texas at Arlington is upgraded with the purpose of improving matching accuracy. A review of the baseline automatic fingerprint identification system is provided as a reference point for improvements in the system. Then, improvements to the image enhancement stage of the baseline system are discussed. They include replacing the simple transformation contrast stretching algorithm with the "contract and stretch" algorithm and upgrading the threshold variance in image segmentation to a threshold variance to mean ratio. Next, improvements to the feature extraction and fusion stage of the baseline system are covered. A new method for quantizing ridge direction estimates in the direction image is included in this section. Finally, alternative matching schemes are implemented in the correlation-based matching stage of the baseline system. The new matching schemes include direction only feature, density only feature, two channels with addition-type fusion, two channels with multiplication-type fusion and two templates per class. At the end, simulations are performed in order to test the performance of the improvements implemented in the automatic fingerprint identification system.

The three volume set LNCS 3610, LNCS 3611, and LNCS 3612 constitutes the refereed proceedings of the First International Conference on Natural Computation, ICNC 2005, held in Changsha, China, in August 2005 jointly with the Second International Conference on Fuzzy Systems and Knowledge Discovery FSKD 2005 (LNAI volumes 3613 and 3614).The program committee selected 313 carefully revised full papers and 189 short papers for presentation in three volumes from 1887 submissions. The first volume includes all the contributions related to learning algorithms and architectures in neural networks, neurodynamics, statistical neural network models and support vector machines, and other topics in neural network models; cognitive science, neuroscience informatics, bioinformatics, and bio-medical engineering, and neural network applications as communications and computer networks, expert system and informatics, and financial engineering. The second volume concentrates on neural network applications such as pattern recognition and diagnostics, robotics and intelligent control, signal processing and multi-media, and other neural network applications; evolutionary learning, artificial immune systems, evolutionary theory, membrane, molecular, DNA computing, and ant colony systems. The third volume deals with evolutionary methodology, quantum computing, swarm intelligence and intelligent agents; natural computation applications as bioinformatics and bio-medical engineering, robotics and intelligent control, and other applications of natural computation; hardware implementations of natural computation, and fuzzy neural systems as well as soft computing.

Automatic and reliable authentication of individuals is becoming an essential part of the modern world, for security and convenience in our life, in our work andin society.Biometrics-basedsystems utilize physiologicalorbehavioralch- acteristics of an individual including the face, iris, ?ngerprint, palmprint, hand, voice, signature, or a combination of them, for this task. We are now seeing increasing interest and practical deployment of biometric systems. TheInternationalWorkshoponBiometricRecognitionSystems(IWBRS2005) was held in conjunction with ICCV 2005, providing an interactive forum for leading biometrics researchersand system designers.A biometric authentication competition (BAC) was conducted by the workshopto track the state-of-the-art biometrics technologies. This volume of workshop proceedings includes 32 papers carefully selected from a total of 130 submissions. The papers address the problems in face, iris, ?ngerprint, palmprint, speech, writing and other biometrics, and contribute new ideastoresearchanddevelopmentofreliableandpracticalsolutionsforbiometric authentication. We would like to express our gratitude to all the contributors, reviewers, and ProgramCommittee and OrganizingCommittee members who made this a very successful workshop. We also wish to acknowledge the Institute of Automation, ChineseAcademyofSciences,andSpringerforsponsoringthisworkshop.Special thanks are due to Miao Hong, Xin Yang, Zhuoshi Wei, Yinghao Cai, Zhaofeng He, Cheng Zhong, Shiqi Yu and Xianchao Qiu for their hard work in workshop organization. We hope you could bene't from the fruitful workshop to improve the perf- mance of your biometric systems.
