The development of face recognition over the past years allows an organization into three types of recognition algorithms, namely frontal, profile, and view-tolerant recognition, depending on the kind of imagery and the according recognition algorithms. While frontal recognition certainly is the classical approach, view-tolerant algorithms usually perform recognition in a more sophisticated fashion by taking into consideration some of the underlying physics, geometry, and statistics. Profile schemes as stand-alone systems have a rather marginal significance for identification. However, they are very practical either for fast coarse pre-searches of large face databases to reduce the computational load for a subsequent sophisticated algorithm, or as part of a hybrid recognition scheme.Such hybrid approaches have a special status among face recognition systems as they combine different recognition approaches in an either serial or parallel order to overcome the shortcomings of the individual components.
