             abstract = "FingerCode is a fingerprint correlation matching scheme that 
                         relies on texture information. In this scheme, the oriented 
                         components are extracted from a fingerprint image using a bank of 
                         Gabor filters, and a directional texture feature vector is 
                         computed for each oriented component. The feature vectors from the 
                         input and template images are compared and a matching score is 
                         obtained. Here we explore ways to improve the matching score for 
                         the FingerCode method by using more complex matching functions. 
                         The best results were obtained by applying a nonlinear function to 
                         the texture values and weighting the texture vectors based on the 
                         spatial distribution.",
