Is AdaBoost an online classificer only?

I have been using CControl library for classify data. As I understand AdaBoost, it's an online non-linear classifier algorithm and not an algorithm, such as SVM, that gives you weights back were you ...

How does Adaboost reassure us that It'll do better after each iteration?

From what I know, AdaBoost works by concat-ing a weak classifier(ussually a one-level decision tree) to the previous linear combination of other weak classifiers to improve its accuracy after each ...

How is a single classifier fitted on AdaBoost?

The AdaBoost algorithm is: My trouble is how the classifier $G_m(x)$ is trained, What does mean a classifier to be trained using weights $w_i$? Is it to fit classifier through $\{w_i,y_i\}_{i=1}^{N}$?...

Does hyperparameter tuning of Decision Tree then use it in Adaboost individually vs Simultaneously yield the same results?

So, my predicament here is as follows, I performed hyperparameter tuning on a standalone Decision Tree classifier, and I got the best results, now comes the turn of Standalone Adaboost, but here is ...

AdaBoost decision_function() outputs in binary classification with sklearn

As I understand it based on some study of the source code, I would expect, when using AdaBoost, that values obtained by calling decision_function() would be bounded between -1 and 1. This is because ...
