    @Title("DBOD: Distance Based Outlier Detection")
    @Description("If the D-neighborhood of an object contains only very few objects (less than (1-p) percent of the data) this object is flagged as an outlier")

    public class DBOutlierDetection<O>
    extends AbstractDBOutlier<O>
    Simple distanced based outlier detection algorithm. User has to specify two parameters An object is flagged as an outlier if at least a fraction p of all data objects has a distance above d from c.
