I'm watching an SVM tutorial.

At 6:38 he mentions lagrangian, which is a term I'm not familiar with.

So I googled it, hoping to find the Wikipedia article about it, but it seems like this term is actually ambiguous, and Wikipedia suggests several articles.

Which of the suggested articles should I read in order to understand the meaning of lagrangian in this context?


1 Answer 1


He is referring to Lagrangian Multipliers, an optimization technique for problems with equality constraints.
