Ideal Parameter Selection    

Robert P. Munafo, 1996 Dec 3.

A family of Speed Improvements involving the automatic selection of optimum parameters for a view, which usually results in a speed improvement because the user either cannot or doesn't bother to determine the best setting for the parameters in a view. (For other speed improvements that work by making the user interface better, see Successive Tradeoff Methods.)

Here are some of the techniques:

Automatic Math-Precision, in which the precision of arithmetic used is automatically set based on the Magnification.

Automatic Dwell Limit (heuristic method), in which a statistical analysis of a sampling of points in the image is used to determine a Dwell Limit setting.

Runtime Benchmarking, in which two alternate and equally viable alrogithms are compared to determine which is faster on the given machine or in a given view.
