Face recognition become very interesting topic of research because of lot of unsolved parameters. From past few decades number of researchers work on the topic to solve the problem of face recognition but still successful face recognition system is not yet implemented hence we proposed face recognition algorithm that match face matrix.

This book is not about cemeteries. Nor is it a mystery-suspense story. It is about writing-the craft of writing and telling a tale. It is about how to use other people's stories, and what we are allowed to do with them. The plot of any story is the key. The plot is the story within the story that propels the action and develops the tale. In Hamlet, for instance, the story deals with who will be the rightful king of Denmark, but the plot is concerned with revenge and ambition. The plot is the nucleus of the action, and it is here that the writer must look to form his efforts. In Part One, the authors deal in depth with the structuring and "spicing" of the story.

Notwithstanding the tremendous effort to solve the face recognition problem, it is not possible yet to design a face recognition system with a potential close to human performance. New computer vision and pattern recognition approaches need to be investigated. Even new knowledge and perspectives from different fields like, psychology and neuroscience must be incorporated into the current field of face recognition to design a robust face recognition system. Indeed, many more efforts are required to end up with a human like face recognition system. This book tries to make an effort to reduce the gap between the previous face recognition research state and the future state.

These proceedings offer a written account of the scientific contributions presented at the 12th Iberoamerican Congress on Pattern Recognition (CIARP 2007), held in Vi˜na del Mar-Valpara´ıso, Chile. The aim of the congress was to promote and disseminate ongoing research and mathematical methods for pattern recognition, image analysis, and applications in such diverse areas as computer vision, bioinformatics, robotics and remote sensing, industry, health, space exploration, data mining, document analysis, natural language processing and speech recognition, among others. The volume is a manifestation of the ongoing success of the Iberoamerican Congress on Pattern Recognition (CIARP) that has featured in the landscape of international scientific conferences on pattern recognition and computer vision in the past few years. It provides evidence of the growing stature of the Iberoamerican scientific community in this subject area and of the interest its scientific contributions generate worldwide. As in the previous years, CIARP 2007 hosted participants from all over the world.

Genre: History

Based on a wealth of documents long buried in the Vatican archives, Prisoner of the Vatican tells the story of the Church's secret attempt to block the unification of Italy and seize control - not in ancient times, but in the late nineteenth century. For more than fifty years, the pope was a self-imposed prisoner within the Vatican walls, planning to flee Italy, to return only as the restored ruler of Rome and the Papal States. The scheme to dismantle the newborn Italian nation involved not only the cardinals and the Curia but also attempts to exploit the rivalries among France, Germany, Austria, Spain, and England. Kertzer brings to light an untold drama played out among fascinating characters: Pope Pius IX, the most important pontiff in modern history; King Victor Emmanuel, working behind the backs of his own ministers; the dashing national hero Garibaldi; France's ill-starred Napoleon III, and many more
