%A Rolf P. W?rtz %J IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence %T Object Recognition Robust Under Translations, Deformations, and Changes in Background. %X Recognition systems based on model matching using low level features often fail due to a variation in background. As a solution I present a system for the recognition of human faces independent of hairstyle. Correspondence maps between an image and a model are established by coarse-fine matching in a Gabor pyramid. These are used for hierarchical recognition. %N 7 %P 769-775 %V 19 %D 1997 %L cogprints498
