The paper proposes a Wavelet Probabilistic Neural Network (WPNN) for iris biometric classifier. The WPNN combines wavelet neural network and probabilistic neural network for a new classifier model which will be able to improve the biometrics recognition accuracy as well as the global system performance. A simple and fast training algorithm, Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), is also introduced for training the wavelet probabilistic neural network. In iris matching, the CASIA iris database is used and the experimental results show that the feasibility and performance of the proposed method.
