Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4756)


In this article we present a new polynomial function that can be used as a kernel for Support Vector Machines (SVMs) in binary classification and regression problems. We prove that this function fulfills the mathematical properties of a kernel. We consider here a set of SVMs based on this kernel with which we perform a set of experiments. Their efficiency is measured against some of the most popular kernel functions reported in the past.
