Title: Indexing Face Templates Using Linear Models.

Abstract: We present a theory for constructing linear subspace approximations to face-recognition algorithms and empirically demonstrate that a surprisingly diverse set of face-recognition approaches can be approximated well by using a linear model. A linear model, built using a training set of face images, is specified in terms of a linear subspace spanned by possible non-orthogonal vectors.
