The Nearest Shrunken Centroid is computed using a threshold. This threshold is usually determined by finding the best threshold value over a set of values by finding the threshold leading to the best error rate assessed by cross-validation. This class stores the values of thresholds to be tried. If the user wants to use default values it's also possible.
Create an empty thresholds. The default thresholds values will be computed and this object updated as soon as it is linked in an assessment.
Create a thresholds, containing the thresholds values defined by
optionValues. The slot
noOfOptions is automatically updated.
numeric Values of the thresholds, if
optionValues has length zero then the default thresholds values must be used.
numeric Number of thresholds.
Retreive the number of the thresholds (slot noOfOptions)
Retreive and modify the values of the thresholds (slot optionValues)
