I am trying to calculate the dual form of an SVM optimisation problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Dual Form Optimsation Problem

In my algorithm, I have a vector of alphas, vector of target outputs, and a Kernel matrix computing upfront.

However, I am stuck as to what indices alpha and j should be taking here. If i and j are equal, then everything is just squared. Is this for i =/= j?

If so, could I just duplicate each vector and flip it?
