  • Reliable human authentication schemes are of paramount importance in our highly networked society.  Advances in  biometrics help address the myriad of problems associated with traditional human recognition methods. The performance and benefits of a biometric system can be significantly enhanced by consolidating the evidence presented by multiple biometric sources. Multibiometric systems are expected to meet the stringent performance requirements imposed by large-scale authentication systems.
    Handbook of Multibiometrics, a professional book, introduces multibiometric systems, and demonstrates the noteworthy advantages of these systems over their unimodal counterparts. In addition, this book describes in detail the various scenarios possible when fusing biometric evidence from multiple information sources.
    This comprehensive volume on multibiometric systems, concisely and clearly outlines the different fusion methodologies that have been proposed by researchers to integrate multiple biometric traits.

  • This is the first study of mass media in Germany from a social and cultural-historical perspective. Beyond the conventional focus on organizational structures or aesthetic content, it investigates the impact the media has on German society under varying political systems, and how the media is shaped by wider social, political and cultural context.
