getDescription

public java.lang.String getDescription()
Description copied from class: SphereDistorter
What does this object do?

Overrides:
getDescription in class SphereDistorter

transform

public final void transform(double[] x,
                            double[] y)
Description copied from class: Transformer
Convert a single point where the output vector is supplied.

Specified by:
transform in class Transformer
Parameters:
x - The input vector.
y - The output vector, it may be the same as the input vector if the dimensionalities are the same. All transformers are expected to work with aliased inputs and output.
