In this paper we have applied Gabor filter for fiducial point localization. After obtaining the fiducial points the number of fiducial points are reduced using a distance formula. The distance of each of this fiducial point is then calculated by the distance formula and stored in the database of the system. The same methodology is also applied on the input face which is to be matched with the faces available in the database. Then a fuzzy preference relation matrix is obtained . the largest eigen value of this matrix is then determined by algebraic method or numerical method depending on the order of the matrix. To apply the numerical method which is more easier for large order matrices we have used the C programming of this method . Once the largest eigen value is determined the corresponding priority vector can easily be obtained from which we can easily match the input face with the database.
