    We propose a new support vector data description (SVDD) incorporating the local density of a training data set by introducing a local density degree for each data point. By using a density-induced distance measure based on the degree, we reformulate a conventional SVDD. Experiments with various real data sets show that the proposed method more accurately describes training data sets than the conventional SVDD in all tested cases.
