# Adaptive SVM formulation, finding the dual of the optimization problem

I am trying to find the dual optimization problem for the following adaptive SVM. $\mathbf{w}_t$ are the weights of the target SVM. $C$ and $B$ are regularization parameters (constants), $\mathbf{w}_s$ are the weights of the source SVM (constants) and $\mathbf{\xi}$ is a slack variable.

• Since $w_{S}$ is a constant, you can drop the last two terms. – jpmuc Mar 29 '17 at 5:49
