In this paper we consider face recognition from sets of face images and, in particular, recognition invariance to illumination. The main contribution is an algorithm based on the novel concept of Maximally Probable Mutual Modes (MMPM). Specifically: (i) we discuss and derive a local manifold illumination invariant and (ii) show how the invariant naturally leads to a formulation of ``common modes'' of two face appearance distributions. Recognition is then performed by finding the most probable mode, which is shown to be an eigenvalue problem. The effectiveness of the proposed method is demonstrated empirically on a challenging database containing the total of 700 video sequences of 100 individuals.

If you have difficulty viewing files that end '.gz', which are gzip compressed, then you may be able to find tools to uncompress them at the gzip web site.

If you have difficulty viewing files that are in PostScript, (ending '.ps' or '.ps.gz'), then you may be able to find tools to view them at the gsview web site.

We have attempted to provide automatically generated PDF copies of documents for which only PostScript versions have previously been available. These are clearly marked in the database - due to the nature of the automatic conversion process, they are likely to be badly aliased when viewed at default resolution on screen by acroread.
