This paper presents a method of recognizing human face profile. The conventional methods of recognizing human face profile use the computer-derived fiducial marks, lines, angles, and other measures of profile outline as the components of characteristic vector. We use P-type Fourier descriptor as a characteristic vector of human face profile. It is shown that four P-type Fourier coefficients in the low frequency range can identify 65 face profiles, with the accuracy of 100%.
