Abstract
This paper proposes two new methods to detect the fingerprints of different persons based on one-dimensional and two-dimensional discrete wavelet transformations (DWTs). Recent literature shows that fingerprint detection based on DWT requires less memory space compared to pattern recognition and moment-based image recognition techniques. In this study four statistical parameters - cross correlation co-efficient, skewness, kurtosis and convolution of the approximate coefficient of one-dimensional DWTs are used to evaluate the two methods involving fingerprints of the same person and those of different persons. Within the contexts of all statistical parameters in detection of fingerprints, our second method shows better results than that of the first method.
