Computer graphics and statistics often use parameters with values defined in the [0‥1] interval. How would you name a type for such as value (as in
typedef NNN float)
It seems that the only mathematical term that fits these requirements is “mantissa”‘ but it’s an overloaded term in computer science.
I settled for “norm” as in practice, the normalization of a value will bring it back to the [0‥1] interval. Thoughts? Recommendations? Alternatives?
Here’s another thread on the topic, btw.
