Today in Modern Society Face Recognition has gained much attention in the field of network multimedia access. After the 9/11 tragedy in India, the need for technologies for identification, detection and recognition of suspects has increased. One of the most common biometric recognition techniques is face recognition since face is the convenient way used by the people to identify each other. In this paper we are going to study a method for representing face which is based on the features which uses geometric relationship among the facial features like mouth, nose and eyes .Feature based face representation is done by independently matching templates of three facial regions i.e eyes, mouth and nose .Principal Component Analysis method which is also called Eigen faces is appearance based technique used widely for the dimensionality reduction and recorded a greater performance in face recognition. Here we are going to study about PCA followed by Feed Forward Neural Network called PCA-NN.
