Abstract: Face recognition has achieved more attention in computer vision with the focus on modelling the expression variations of human. However, in computer vision system, face recognition is a challenging task, due to variation in expressions, poses, and lighting conditions. This paper proposes a facial recognition technique based on 2D Hybrid Markov Model (2D HMM), Cat Swam Optimization (CSO), Local Directional Pattern (LDP), and Tetrolet Transform. Skin segmentation method is used for pre-processing followed by filtering to extract the region of interest. Resultant image is fed to proposed feature extraction method comprising of Tetrolet Transform and LDP. Extracted features are classified using proposed classifier “CSO trained 2D-HMM classification method”. To prove the superiority of method, four face datasets are used, and comparative results are presented. Quantitively results are measured by False Acceptance Rate (FAR), False Rejection Rate (FRR) and Accuracy and the values are 0.0025, 0.0035 and 99.65% respectively
