Find classification edge for support vector machine (SVM) classifier by resubstitution

returns the resubstitution Classification Edge (`e`

= resubEdge(`SVMModel`

)`e`

) for the support vector
machine (SVM) classifier `SVMModel`

using the training data stored
in `SVMModel.X`

and the corresponding class labels stored in
`SVMModel.Y`

.

The classification edge is a scalar value that represents the weighted mean of the classification margins.

For binary classification, the software defines the margin for
observation *j*, *m _{j}*, as

$${m}_{j}=2{y}_{j}f({x}_{j}),$$

where *y _{j}* ∊ {-1,1}, and
