This paper presents a new approach to synthesize face images under different pose changes given a single input image. The approach is based on two observations: 1. a series of face images of a single person under different poses could be mapped to a smooth manifold in the unified feature space. 2. the manifolds from different faces are separated from each other by their dissimilarities. The new manifold estimation is formulated as an energy minimization problem with smoothness constraints. The
