Kernel methods offer a flexible toolbox for pattern analysis and machine learning. A
general class of kernel functions which incorporates known pattern invariances are invariant
distance substitution (IDS) kernels. Instances such as tangent distance or dynamic time-
warping kernels have demonstrated the real world applicability. This motivates the demand
for investigating the elementary properties of the general IDS-kernels. In this paper we
formally state and demonstrate their invariance properties, in particular the adjustability
