Detailed Description

Misc. knobs controlling tree subdivision.

Available settings for controlling when and how nodes in the tree are split. The constructor will initialize to the default settings. All settings except best_split_ratio control when a node is subdivided. best_split_ratio influences the choice of how the node is subdivided.

A calculated ratio is used in the determination of when and how to split a node. The ratio is calculated as:

  • \(max(\frac{|n_L - n_R|}{n_L+n_R}, f*\frac{n_I}{n_L+n_R})\)
  • \(n_L\) : num entities to be placed in left child
  • \(n_R\) : num entities to be placed in right child
  • \(f\) : Settings::intersect_ratio_factor
  • \(n_I\): num entities intersecting split plane

ALL of the following conditions must be met for a node to be further subdivied:

  • Depth must be less than max_depth
  • Node must contain more than max_leaf_entities entities.
  • The 'ratio' must be less than worst_split_ratio

The node will be subdivided using a plane normal to one of the box axis and containing the box center. The planes are tested beginning with the one orthogonal to the longest box axis and finishing with the one orthogonal to the shortest box axis. The search will stop at the first plane for which the 'ratio' is at least Settings::best_split_ratio . Giving Settings::best_split_ratio a non-zero value gives preference to a split orthogonal to larger box dimensions.

Must be in [0.0,worst_split_ratio] The search for an optimal split plane for splitting a node will stop if at least this ratio is achieved for the number of entities on each side of the split plane.

Must be in [best_split_ratio,1.0] A tree node will not be split if the ratio of children in the child nodes is greater than this value.
