Interface SMNumericThreshold

All Superinterfaces:
SimilarityMeasure, SMNumeric
All Known Implementing Classes:

public interface SMNumericThreshold extends SMNumeric
Threshold functions should be used if there is the possibility that the contribution of an attribute to the utility is binary in the sense that up to a certain difference the case is useful and beyond it is not useful.
