Default PLA Optimization criteria

The PLA algorithm, eqn. 1.3, can be used to partition linearly separable data. What I'm curious is to what optimization criteria underlies eqn. 1.3? The figures on pp. 6-7 show that for a 2D case we have the algorithm converge to some straight line decision boundary, and it is also qualitatively clear that many different straight-lines, would "work" equally well (ie give the same E_{in} error rate); however PLA converges to a specific solution. The PLA algorithm seems to provide both, an optimization criteria, and a method for solution too. The opt. criteria gives provides uniqueness. Can the optimization criteria underlying PLA (eqn 1.3) be spelled out explicitly? Thank you.
