The paper considers a new classification method utilizing mathematical programming techniques. It minimizes a penalty function (measuring misclassification), which is constructed with quadratic separating surfaces dividing the space into several areas. Elements from one area are supposed to belong to the same class. We have formulated a linear programming… (More)
