Application of support vector machine in geodesy for the classification of vertical displacements
The article presents basic rules for constructing and training neural networks, called the Support Vector Machine technique. SVM networks can mainly be used for solving tasks of classification of linearly and nonlinearly separable data and regression as well as identifying signals and recognising increases. In this paper SVM networks have been used for classifying linearly separable data in order to formulate a model of displacements of points representing a monitored object. The problem of learning networks requires the use of quadratic programming in search of an optimum point of a Lagrange function with respect to optimised parameters. Estimated parameters determine the location of the hyperplane which maximises the separation margin of both classes.
