We present a novel algorithm, which is called Cutting Algorithm (CA), for improving the accuracy and reducing the computations of the Least Squares Support Vector Machines (LS-SVMs). The method is based on dividing the original problem to some subproblems. Since a master problem is converted to some small problems, so this algorithm has fewer computations. Although, in some cases that the typical LS-SVM cannot classify the dataset linearly, applying the CA the datasets can be classified. In fact, the CA improves the accuracy and reduces the computations. The reported and comparative results on some known datasets and synthetics data demonstrate the efficiency and the performance of CA.
