Could you do a tutorial or instruction on how the code works? We tried using the code on MATLAB but had no idea how it works. Thanks in advanced.

Help, how i can use your code in matlab ?

Eigen palm code plz


Thanks a lot for putting this code. I have one query, here in case if I have a database of 40 different persons' face but there are 10 face variations of each person, which means I have 400 face images, should I consider 400 eigen faces ?
(as N^2*M would be size of A and A'A would give me 400*400, if I take all 400 images)

I am little confused. Please let me know the correct way.
Thanks in advance.
