Support Vector Machines (SVM) project feature vectors into a linear or non-linear state space using kernel function(s) and attempts to maximize the margin between classes. The projection of feature vectors into a high dimensional hyperspace structure helps to provide sparse separable clusters of data. Biometric data such as fingerprints transformed into feature vectors are candidates for support vector machine sparse classification. Fingerprint position and ridge flow pattern classification provide a feature vector for a kernel function(s). As samples are projected into a hyperspace construct, fingerprint identification velocity will improve while performance will increase or remain constant. This paper discusses and shows the results of a fingerprint identification support vector machine within a novel hyperspace structure. The support vector machine is formalized with a high dimensional hyperspace structure with an internal bootstrapped c-means clustering algorithm and probabilistic neural network (PNN).
