Abstract: We outline a method, using simulated annealing algorithm, to optimize the dilation factor of the wavelet function, from a number of images. The optimized dilation factor has been used to obtain wavelet matched filters (WMFs) for different fingerprint images. A single WMF instead of a bank of filters can be used for identifying each image. The filter performance was tested in terms of discrimination ratio, peak-to-correlation plane energy ratio, peak-to-sidelobe ratio and average similarity measure with digitally degraded fingerprints. The performance has been compared with that of a classical matched filter and a phase only filter. The filter performance has also been tested for noisy images.
