It's built in to the Computer Vision Toolbox http://www.mathworks.com/products/computer-vision/description4.html. It uses the Viola Jones method, if you've heard of that. It uses Haar features, which is like an edge detector in a way. There are also several face detection submissions in the File Exchange.

Sorry but I don't have time to read the paper and explain it to you. I don't have time to do that for anybody, not just you. Few people here do, unless the paper really really strikes their interest or curiosity for some reason.
