# Distinguising features of linear vs, non-linear machine learning models (algorithms) [closed]

What are some examples of linear and non-linear machine learning models (algorithms) for purposes of comparison between the two categories? Which are the parameters (or scalars in a linear algebraic sense) and which are the predictors/factors (or vectors in a linear algebraic sense again)?

• Welcome to DS.SE! Your question seems quite broad, could you sharpen it to contain only one well defined one?
