Reviews

From the reviews:

“The current text, written at the University of Salzburg, assembles the results of an impressive body of research on iris recognition and biometrics, and is a major contribution to the field. … This text is sure to find a place on the desk of any researcher currently involved in iris recognition systems and associated biometrics.” (Minette Carl and R. Goldberg, Computing Reviews, August, 2013)
