This paper presents a new approach to palmprint retrieval for personal identification. Three key issues in image retrieval are considered - feature selection, similarity measures and dynamic search for the best matching of the sample in the image database. We propose a texture-based method for palmprint feature representation. The concept of texture energy is introduced to define a palm print's global and local features, which are characterized with high convergence of inner-palm similarities and good dispersion of inter-palm discrimination. The search is carried out in a layered fashion: first global features are used to guide the fast selection of a small set of similar candidates from the database from the database and then local features are used to decide the final output within the candidate set. The experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness and accuracy of the proposed method.
