Hi Manuel,

there's also the references mentioned in ?svm once you've loaded the e1071
library. Nevertheless, that's rather detailed on the implementation side,
not on the general picture that I assume you'd like for a book.


There's also the downloadable "A guide for beginners: C.-W. Hsu, C.-C.
Chang, C.-J.  Lin. A practical guide to support vector classification"
mentioned in the "additional information" section of
http://www.csie.ntu.edu.tw/~cjlin/libsvm/ (which, in turn, is from ?svm)
