<p><b>Abstract</b>—We present a system for recognizing human faces from single images out of a large database containing one image per person. Faces are represented by <it>labeled graphs</it>, based on a Gabor wavelet transform. Image graphs of new faces are extracted by an elastic graph matching process and can be compared by a simple similarity function. The system differs from the preceding one [<ref rid="bibi07751" type="bib">1</ref>] in three respects. Phase information is used for accurate node positioning. Object-adapted graphs are used to handle large rotations in depth. Image graph extraction is based on a novel data structure, the <it>bunch graph</it>, which is constructed from a small set of sample image graphs.</p>
