Invariant-based Face Recognition

Abstract: After a brief review of recent striking applications of algebra to engineering and computer science, the currently significant problem of face recognition is addressed. We introduce a new approach to obtaining invariants of Lie groups adapted to this problem and describe its success in implementations.

Refreshments will be served at 2:45 p.m. (MATX 1115, Math Faculty Lounge).
