Sequence position dependent regularization. Example for the regularization term tw Λ w in equation (2). The weight vector w corresponds to a scoring matrix for three nucleic acids as in Figure 2, but without pair coefficients. The diagonal matrix Λ has three different values Λ1, Λ2 and Λ3 effecting values in vector w corresponding to sequence positions 1, 2 and 3. There is no regularization penalty on the 'Offset' value.
