Iinstead of a standard support vector machine that classifies points by assigning them to one of two disjoint half-spaces, PSVM classifies points by assigning them to the closest of two parallel planes. For more information, see our paper Proximal Support Vector Machines.

SVMs are an optimization based approach for solving machine learning problems. For an introduction to SVMs, you may want to look at this tutorial.
