# What is C and gamma?

## What is C and gamma?

C is a hypermeter which is set before the training model and used to control error and Gamma is also a hypermeter which is set before the training model and used to give curvature weight of the decision boundary.

**What do C and gamma do in SVM?**

The gamma parameters can be seen as the inverse of the radius of influence of samples selected by the model as support vectors. The C parameter trades off correct classification of training examples against maximization of the decision function’s margin.

**What does C in SVM do?**

C parameter in SVM is Penalty parameter of the error term. You can consider it as the degree of correct classification that the algorithm has to meet or the degree of optimization the the SVM has to meet. For greater values of C, there is no way that SVM optimizer can misclassify any single point.

### What is Gamma in SVC?

gamma. gamma is a parameter for non linear hyperplanes. The higher the gamma value it tries to exactly fit the training data set gammas = [0.1, 1, 10, 100]for gamma in gammas: svc = svm.SVC(kernel=’rbf’, gamma=gamma).fit(X, y)

**What is C classification in SVM?**

C ranges from 0 to infinity and can be a bit hard to estimate and use. A >modification to this was the introduction of nu which operates between 0-1 >and represents the lower and upper bound on the number of examples that >are support vectors and that lie on the wrong side of the hyperplane.

**What is C in SVR?**

Further, to avoid overfitting the training data, the concept of regularization is usually applied. An SVR thus solves an optimization problem that involves two parameters: the regularization parameter (often referred to as C) and the error sensitivity parameter (often referred to as ϵ).

## What is C HyperParameter in SVM?

C HyperParameter in SVM C adds penalty to each misclassified point. If the C value is small, then essentially, the penalty for misclassified points is also small, thus resulting in a larger margin based boundary.

**What is the difference between SVC and SVM?**

The difference between them is that LinearSVC implemented in terms of liblinear while SVC is implemented in libsvm. That’s the reason LinearSVC has more flexibility in the choice of penalties and loss functions. It also scales better to large number of samples.

**What is C in linear SVC?**

The C parameter tells the SVM optimization how much you want to avoid misclassifying each training example. For large values of C, the optimization will choose a smaller-margin hyperplane if that hyperplane does a better job of getting all the training points classified correctly.

### What is C regularization?

C is a regularization parameter that controls the trade off between the achieving a low training error and a low testing error that is the ability to generalize your classifier to unseen data.

**What is C and epsilon in SVR?**

Note, we use the following hyperparameter values for the SVR model: epsilon = 10, C = 1. As explained before, epsilon defines the width of the tube around the hyperplane. Meanwhile, regularization parameter C allows us to assign the weight to “slack,” telling the algorithm how much we care about the error.
