Quantile

Quantile is an algorithm to analyze the distribution of observations. Quantiles are the values that divide the distribution so that a given portion of observations is below the quantile.

Details

Given a set
X
of
p
features and the quantile orders , the problem is to compute that meets the following conditions:
In the equations above:
• are observations of a random variable that represents the
i
-th feature
• P
is the probability measure
