The problem of recognizing a face from a single sample available in a stored dataset is addressed. A new method of tackling this problem by using the Fisherface method on a generic dataset is explored. The recognition scheme is also extended to multiscale transform domains like wavelet, curvelet and contourlet. The proposed method in the transform domain shows better recognition errors than the SPCA algorithm and Eigenface selection method, both of which are specially tailored for recognizing faces from single samples.
