I am saying this because with more training points you have less margin for the margin (sorry for the game of words). My program also concluded this but obviously something went wrong both with the program and my expectation

Why does the opposite happen, i.e. SVM approximates better the target function than PLA with more points?
From my numbers, the performance of SVM vs PLA didn't change very much at all between N = 10 and N = 100. Granted I'm not sure my program is functioning properly since I know I have a few small bugs with the QP.
