Book Description

Review ?The ?Encyclopedia of Biometrics? is the foremost reference for anyone needing information on the subject. ? This outstanding volume serves not only as a quick reference for a quick definition or explanation of a concept, but also as a guide to deeper investigations into new ways of applying computer technologies to biomedicine.?
