Paper Abstract

The science of fingerprinting constitutes the only infallible means of positive identification of persons, known to man, since statistics show that the probability of finding two identical fingerprints is stochastically zero. The ridge patterns which can be seen on a newly born infant will remain unchanged throughout the life of an individual unless they are destroyed by accident or disease.
