Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-418) add a storeless version of Percentile
Date Sat, 19 Apr 2014 21:29:16 GMT


Venkatesha Murthy TS commented on MATH-418:

Ted ,
I understand the point of view ; however just to clarify
a) While  I have modeled this implement based on the existing Percentile class and as StorelessUnivariatestatistic;
i agree its approximate for smaller sets but should improve for larger set. I could add a
comment that this is an approximate technique,
b) GK, T-Digest, Q-Digest, BinMedian, BinApprox etc i feel all of them can be implementation
choices that user could use rather than sticking to any perticular algo

Please let me know .

Also l will clear the check style and findbug issues and re submit with tests added

> It would be interesting to use an on-line algorithm to estimate quantiles as a storeless
> An example of such an algorithm is the exponentially weighted stochastic approximation
