About this item

Focusing on the fundamental aspects of fingerprinting for personal identification and criminal investigation, this text addresses the visualization, detection, and recording of friction ridge skin impressions and the issues involved in the identification and individualization of unknown marks when compared with known prints. It covers the morphogenesis of friction ridge skin; the identification process; chemistry, optics, and photography; major fingerprint detection techniques; and aspects like age determination, forgeries, and errors. This edition has been updated to incorporate new techniques and technology, such as current detection procedures and applicable processing and analysis methods, as well as new topics, including the ACE-V (analysis, comparison, evaluation, and verification) methodology; computerized marking systems; new probabilistic models and decision theories about ridge skin evidence interpretation, including Bayesnet tools; new aspects like nanotechnology, immunology, and hyperspectral imaging; and reagent preparation and application.
