Part of the Series in BioEngineering book series (SERBIOENG)


In this chapter, it will be introduced the different categories of multi-hyper-spectral imaging approaches for biometric modalities. Afterwards, indirect approach will be considered, namely: prerequisites concepts on physics and computer graphics, physical theory for the light-skin interaction models and finally the related applications of multi-hyper-spectral imaging.
