T The validity of PAD (Pleasure-Arousal-Dominance) theory in vision area and the feasibilityT on PAD based models for facial expression analysis are discussed in this paper. Three new models based on PAD theory are proposed and their feasibility is verified by experiments on Cohn-Kanade dataset and PAD dataset which is collected from well-designed psychological experiments. After combining Gabor feature and SVM (Support Vector Machine), the result can be further improved. Compared with the
