Default Re: Should SVMs ALWAYS converge to the same solution given the same data?

Mathematically, the primal problem of SVM enjoys a unique solution; the dual, on the other hand, may or may not come with a unique solution. In some degenerate cases, there can be multiple solutions of the dual (that correspond to the same solution of the primal).

Hope this helps.
When one teaches, two learn.
