In this work we present an appearance-based 3-D Face Recognition approach that is able to recognize faces in video sequences, independent from face pose. For this we combine eigen light-fields with probabilistic propagation over time for evidence integration. Eigen light-fields allow us to build an appearance based 3-D model of an object; probabilistic methods for evidence integration are attractive in this context as they allow a systematic handling of uncertainty and an elegant way for fusing
