This web page provides information, errata, as well as about a third of the chapters of the book Learning with Kernels, written by Bernhard Schölkopf and Alex Smola (MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 2002).
Here you can download the slides of a short course on learning theory, SVMs, and kernel methods. It was given at a summer school at the Australian National University in February 2002. The material is enough for a course of about 8 to 10 hours.
