    public interface SMNumericLinear
    extends SMNumeric
    In most cases the similarity between two numeric values can be described by a linear function. The idea is that the similarity decreases linearly in an interval $[min,max]$ with the increase of difference between the two values. Below $min$ the similarity is maximal, and above $max$, the similarity is minimal.
