For face recognition with a single training image per person, Collaborative Representation based Classification (CRC) has significantly less complexity than Extended Sparse Representation based Classification (ESRC). However, CRC gets lower recognition rates than ESRC. In order to combine the advantages of CRC and ESRC, we propose Extended Collaborative Representation based Classification (ECRC) for face recognition with a single training image per person. ECRC constructs an auxiliary intraclass variant dictionary to represent the possible variation between the testing and training images. Experimental results show that ECRC outperforms the compared methods in terms of both high recognition rates and low computation complexity.
