The increasing interest in Support Vector Machines (SVMs) over the past 15 years is described. Methods are illustrated using simulated case studies, and 4 experimental case studies, namely mass spectrometry for studying pollution, near infrared analysis of food, thermal analysis of polymers and UV/visible spectroscopy of polyaromatic hydrocarbons. The basis(More)
Learning vector quantization (LVQ) is described, with both the LVQ1 and LVQ3 algorithms detailed. This approach involves finding boundaries between classes based on codebook vectors that are created for each class using an iterative neural network. LVQ has an advantage over traditional boundary methods such as support vector machines in the ability to model(More)
