I’d like to know what kind of PSO optimization in Support Vector Machine (PSO). Is it PSO used to solve the dual optimization problem of an SVM or to optimize SVM parameters: C and kernel parameters. Is there any paper reference that RapidMiner developers are based on it to develop Support Vector Machine (PSO)

    You could check out this PhD thesis here:
    But to be honest, I would NOT recommend to use PSO for solving the SVM optimization problem.  For the single-objective case, PSO is simply inferior to the standard Newton approach.  And for multi-objective cases, evolutionary algorithms are the better approach (although I would still not recommend those for SVM either).
