About this book

This authoritative collection introduces the reader to the state of the art in iris recognition technology. Topics and features: with a Foreword by the “father of iris recognition,” Professor John Daugman of Cambridge University; presents work from an international selection of preeminent researchers, reflecting the uses of iris recognition in many different social contexts; provides viewpoints from researchers in government, industry and academia, highlighting how iris recognition is both a thriving industry and an active research area; surveys previous developments in the field, and covers topics ranging from the low-level (e.g., physics of iris image acquisition) to the high level (e.g., alternative non-Daugman approaches to iris matching); introduces many active and open areas of research in iris recognition, including cross-wavelength matching and iris template aging. This book is an essential resource for anyone wishing to improve their understanding of iris recognition technology.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The book consists of 18 chapters with very detailed analysis of state of the art in particular areas of Iris Recognition technology. … The handbook will be very useful to anyone interested in or currently working in iris recognition; the presented collection will be a real table-book.” (Valery Starovoitov, IAPR Newsletter, Vol. 36 (2), April, 2014)

“Springer has published Handbook of Iris Recognition, which contains 19 contributed chapters from 42 different researchers … . this is a book well balanced and well worth having in one’s professional library … . With this clear labour of love, Burge and Bowyer have made an outstanding contribution to our science of automated human recognition, for which they and the contributors are to be strongly congratulated.” (James Wayman, IET Biometrics, Vol. 3 (1), 2014)

"...an excellent summary of the state of theory, technology, and applications of the important biometric identification modality that uses the characteristics of the iris. ...For anyone interested in iris recognition, this book is indispensable." (Creed Jones, ACM Computing Reviews, May, 2013)
