Reservoir characterization especially well log data analysis plays an important role in petroleum exploration. This is the process used to identify the potential for oil production at a given source. In recent years, support vector machines (SVMs) have gained much attention as a result of its strong theoretical background. SVM is based on statistical learning theory known as the Vapnik-Chervonenkis theory. The theory has a strong mathematical foundation for dependencies estimation and… CONTINUE READING
