Interface Summary Interface Description DoubleQuantileFinderThe interface shared by all quantile finders, no matter if they are exact or approximate. Class Summary Class Description DoubleBufferA buffer holding double elements; internally used for computing approximate quantiles. DoubleEquiDepthHistogramRead-only equi-depth histogram for selectivity estimation. DoubleQuantileFinderFactoryFactory constructing exact and approximate quantile finders for both known and unknown N. ExactDoubleQuantileFinderExact quantile finding algorithm for known and unknown N requiring large main memory; computes quantiles over a sequence of double elements.
Package cern.jet.stat.tdouble.quantile Description
The approx. algorithms are primarily intended to help applications scale.When faced with a large data sequence, traditional methods either need very large memories or time consuming disk based sorting.In constrast, the approx. algorithms can deal with > 10^10 values without disk based sorting.
All classes can be seen from various angles, for example as
