i am really sorry to ask this on the list, but i havent been able to
find anything on this topic.

i would like to know how the various parameters in the svm function
call in library e1071 work. all the literature that i was able to find
on the internet have been on the mathematics and derivation of
equations of the SVM or some very specific examples that relate to
biostatistics. i have been unable to find a concise description of how
these parameters affect the model.
so far i have been using a brute force method, running all possible
permutations and combinations , but this is taking enormous amounts of

i would be grateful for any help that you could provide. 

thanks and regards ,
