Since research on face recognition began in the 1960's, the field has rapidly widened to automated face analysis including face detection, facial gesture recognition, and facial expression recognition.

Automated Face Analysis: Emerging Technologies and Research provides theoretical background to understand the overall configuration and challenging problem of automated face analysis systems, featuring a comprehensive review of recent research for the practical implementation of the analysis system. A must-read for practitioners and students in the field, this book provides understanding by systematically dividing the subject into several subproblems such as detection, modeling, and tracking of the face.
