    public class PerturbationFilter<V extends NumberVector>
    extends AbstractVectorConversionFilter<V,​V>
    A filter to perturb the values by adding micro-noise.

    The added noise is generated, attribute-wise, by a Gaussian with mean=0 and a specified standard deviation or by a uniform distribution with a specified range. The standard deviation or the range can be scaled, attribute-wise, to a given percentage of the original standard deviation in the data distribution (assuming a Gaussian distribution there), or to a percentage of the extension in each attribute (maximumValue - minimumValue).

    This filter has a potentially wide use but has been implemented for the following publication:
