Towards A Deeper Geometric, Analytic and Algorithmic Understanding of Margins

20 Jun 2014Aaditya RamdasJavier Peña

Given a matrix $A$, a linear feasibility problem (of which linear classification is a special case) aims to find a solution to a primal problem $w: A^Tw > \textbf{0}$ or a certificate for the dual problem which is a probability distribution $p: Ap = \textbf{0}$. Inspired by the continued importance of "large-margin classifiers" in machine learning, this paper studies a condition measure of $A$ called its \textit{margin} that determines the difficulty of both the above problems...
