In the paper, fuzzy fisherface is extended to image matrix, namely, the fuzzy 2DLDA (F2DLDA). In the proposed method, we calculate the membership degree matrix by fuzzy K-nearest neighbor (FKNN), and then incorporate the membership degree into the definition of the between-class scatter matrix and the within-class scatter matrix. Finally, we get the fuzzy between-class scatter matrix and fuzzy within-class scatter matrix. In our definition of the between-class scatter matrix and within-class matrix, the fuzzy information is better used than fuzzy fisherface. Experiments on the Yale, ORL and FERET face databases show that the new method works well.
