At the frontier of research, this book offers complete coverage of human ear recognition. It explores all aspects of 3D ear recognition: representation, detection, recognition, indexing and performance prediction. It uses large datasets to quantify and compare the performance of various techniques. Features and topics include: Ear detection and recognition in 2D image; 3D object recognition and 3D biometrics; 3D ear recognition; Performance comparison and prediction.

From the reviews: "'Human ear [recognition] is a new class of relatively stable biometrics,' that has drawn the attention of not only researchers, but also forensics experts, criminologists, and security experts ! . the book will be of great interest to researchers ! . I recommend reading the book as a stepping stone to further research work on human ear recognition, from the viewpoints of both researchers and forensics experts." (J. Myerson, ACM Computing Reviews, December, 2008)
