## Theoretical SeparationEdit

### The general identification equationEdit

- , where:
^{[1]}

is the theoretical separatory value per**S**_{j}characteristic,**jth**is the number of characteristics in the group,**C**is the highest value of logic in the group and**V**is the**j**characteristic index in the target set, where:**jth**

and where:**j = 0..K**is the number of characteristics in the target set.**K**

### Minimal number of characteristics to result in theoretical separationEdit

- , where:
^{[2]}

is the minimal number of characteristics to result in theoretical separation,**t**_{min}is the number of elements in the**G****bounded**class andis the highest value of logic in the group.**V**
