**Elastic net** is a regularization technique that combines LASSO (linear or “L1 penalty”) and ridge regression (quadratic or “L2 penalty”) and thereby represents a compromise between the advantages and disadvantages of the two algorithms. In 2014, it was unexpectedly shown to be mathematically isomorphic to support vector machines, which makes implementing it considerably easier and more efficient.
