    In this thesis, we presented a detailed study of the face verification problem on the mobile device, covering every component of the system. The study includes face detection, registration, normalization, and verification. Furthermore, the information fusion problem is studied to verify face sequences, and to fuse different modalities. Although the work is application-specific, the thesis is not limited to the application, but more extensive. In every step, we have justified the methods we choose both from the theoretical and the practical point of view. In the review part of each chapter, we discussed principles and methodologies on a higher level, for a better understanding of the problems in general. In our solutions, on the other hand, we have taken care of the application requirements, and put much emphasis on the efficiency and simplicity of the methods.
