I am dealing with a piece of software which calculates temperatures, and corrects these based on measurements (which may be in error) as follows:-
- The difference between the corresponding calculated and measured temperatures are found, and arranged in ascending order.
- From this set of temperature differences, subsets are found for which the difference between the largest and smallest element of the subset is less than or equal to some constant.
- The average of the elements of the largest subset is used as a correction to the measured values.
Does anyone know what this method is called, and where I might find out more about it?
