classyfire: Robust multivariate classification using highly optimised SVM ensembles

A collection of functions for the creation and application of highly optimised, robustly evaluated ensembles of support vector machines (SVMs). The package takes care of training individual SVM classifiers using a fast parallel heuristic algorithm, and combines individual classifiers into ensembles. Robust metrics of classification performance are offered by bootstrap resampling and permutation testing.
