Pattern recognition system using support vectors



A method is described wherein the dual representation mathematical principle is used for the design of decision systems. This principle permits some decision functions that are weighted sums of predefined functions to be represented as memory-based decision function. Using this principle a memory-based decision system with optimum margin is designed wherein weights and prototypes of training patterns of a memory-based decision function are determined such that the corresponding dual decision function satisfies the criterion of margin optimality.
