This implementation of the SVM uses a parameterization that is slightly
different but equivalent to the usual (Vapnik) SVM. Here
lambda=1/C.
The Lagrange multipliers are related via
αstar = alpha/lambda, where
alphastar is the usual multiplier, and
alpha our multiplier. Note that if alpha=0
, that
observation is right of the elbow; alpha=1
, left of the elbow;
0<alpha<1
on the elbow. The latter two cases are all support
points.
In each case, the desired prediction.
