Palmprint recognition has drawn a lot of attention during the recent years. Many algorithms have been proposed for palmprint recognition in the past, majority of them being based on features extracted from the transform domain. Many of these transform domain features are not translation or rotation invariant, and therefore a great deal of preprocessing is needed to align the images. In this paper, a powerful image representation, called scattering network/transform, is used for palmprint

The first layer of scattering network captures similar features to SIFT descriptors and the higher-layer features capture higher-frequency content of the signal which are lost in SIFT and other similar descriptors. After extraction of the scattering features, their dimensionality is reduced by applying principal component analysis (PCA) which reduces the computational complexity of the recognition task. Two different classifiers are used for recognition: multi-class SVM and minimum-distance classifier. The proposed scheme has been tested on a well-known palmprint database and achieved accuracy rate of 99.95% and 100% using minimum distance classifier and SVM respectively.
