Gaussian RBF kernel. The outputs of the Gaussian radial basis function kernel as functions of the Euclidean distance between vectors. Four functions are depicted in dashed-double-dotted-blue, long-dashed-red, dashed-green, and dotted-purple curves, corresponding to the cases where the sigma is 0.5, 0.7, 1.0, and 2.0 respectively.
