Abstract: Fingerprint recognition is very important in automatic personalidentification. In conventional fingerprint recognition algorithms,fingerprints are represented graphically with a simple set of minutiae andsingular points, but the information in this kind of representation is notadequate for large-scaleapplications or where fingerprint quality is poor. Acomplete and compact representation of fingerprints is thus highly desirable.In this chapter, we focus on research issues in the graphical representation offingerprints. We first introduce minutiae-based representation and providesome models for the graphical representation of orientation fields. Latterly,we deal with the generation of synthetic fingerprint images and concludewith a discussion of how to establish a complete fingerprint representation.
