In this paper we address the problem of classifying vector sets. We motivate and introduce a novel method based on comparisons between corresponding vector subspaces. In particular, there are two main areas of novelty: (i) we extend the concept of principal angles between linear subspaces to manifolds with arbitrary nonlinearities; (ii) it is demonstrated how boosting can be used for application-optimal principal angle fusion. The strengths of the proposed method are empirically demonstrated on the task of automatic face recognition (AFR), in which it is shown to outperform state-of-the-art methods in the literature.

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.
