I am trying to find some reference to a book or article that presents this upper bound for the E_out for SVM but I am having a really hard time to find anything. Unfortunatly the course book does not cover SVM at all. Any suggestion about articles that discuss this upper bound for SVM more or less clearly?

The result is in Vapnik's short book "The Nature of Statistical Learning Theory" and his more technical book on the subject.
