I am trying to implement the Adaboost.M1. algorithm as described in "The Elements of Statistical Learning" p.301 I don't use Dtettling 's library "boost" because :

By using option weights set to (1/n, 1/n, ..., 1/n) in rpart or tree function, the tree obtained is trivial (just root, no split) whereas without weight or for each weight >1,trees are just fine.

So here is my question : how are weights taken into account in optimal tree's discovery ?
Did someone implement boosting algorithm ?
