# On regularisation parameter transformation of support vector machines

• The Dual-nu Support Vector Machine (SVM) is an effective method in pattern recognition and target detection. It improves on the Dual-C SVM, and offers competitive performance in detection and computation with traditional classifiers. We show that the regularisation parameters Dual-nu and Dual-C can be set such that the same SVM solution is obtained. We present the process of determining the related parameters of one form from the solution of a trained SVM of the other form, and test the relationship with a digit recognition problem. The link between the Dual-nu and Dual-C parameters allows users to use Dual-nu for ease of training, and to switch between the two forms readily.
