Default example of effects of C

Here's an example of how changing C affects the surface chosen by SVM.

I used the polynomial kernel with Q = 3.

C = 0.01


C = 1


C = 100


C = 10000

Nice visualization.
We see how the classifier overfir (in-sample error goes down) when C increases.
It's like the regularization parameter \lambda but inverse effect (think it as if \lambda = 1/C).
Thanks Sendai.
