`svm_rbf()`

defines a support vector machine model. For classification,
the model tries to maximize the width of the margin between classes using a
nonlinear class boundary. For regression, the model optimizes a robust loss
function that is only affected by very large model residuals and uses
nonlinear functions of the predictors. The function can fit classification
and regression models.

There are different ways to fit this model, and the method of estimation is chosen by setting the model *engine*. The engine-specific pages for this model are listed below.

More information on how parsnip is used for modeling is at https://www.tidymodels.org/.

## Arguments

- mode
A single character string for the prediction outcome mode. Possible values for this model are "unknown", "regression", or "classification".

- engine
A single character string specifying what computational engine to use for fitting. Possible engines are listed below. The default for this model is

`"kernlab"`

.- cost
A positive number for the cost of predicting a sample within or on the wrong side of the margin

- rbf_sigma
A positive number for radial basis function.

- margin
A positive number for the epsilon in the SVM insensitive loss function (regression only)

## Details

This function only defines what *type* of model is being fit. Once an engine
is specified, the *method* to fit the model is also defined. See
`set_engine()`

for more on setting the engine, including how to set engine
arguments.

The model is not trained or fit until the `fit()`

function is used
with the data.

Each of the arguments in this function other than `mode`

and `engine`

are
captured as quosures. To pass values
programmatically, use the injection operator like so:

```
value <- 1
svm_rbf(argument = !!value)
```
