class method

class method

(programming)
A kind of method, available in some object-oriented programming languages, that operates on the class as a whole, as opposed to an object method that operates on an object that is an instance of the class.

A typical example of a class method would be one that keeps a count of the number of objects of that class that have been created.

This would mean in order to perform complete boundary value test, one needs to generate [3.sup.6] test cases (729 test cases) manually following the equivalence class method. This is not only time consuming but also not pragmatic.
It allows the court to certify a class where common questions of law or fact predominate, where the class method of adjudication is superior to other methods, and where the class is manageable.
The second class method always has lower computational complexity than the first class because it has no need to process occlusions.
Jon Bergmann, advisory board member for TED-Ed, is also one of the pioneers of the flipped class method, in which teachers assign short video lectures as homework and have students do assignments in class, with their teachers present to answer questions.
Chapters illustrate basic theorems of abstract scattering theory, particularly their application to the perturbation of differential operators with constant coefficients and to the analysis of the trace class method. The second half is devoted to direct analytic methods applied to one- and multi-dimensional case problems (e.g., high- and low-energy asymptotics of the Green function, the scattering matrix, and ray and eikonal expansions).

Diaz refers to the assumption as untenable, simply because it is impossible to determine whether one class method is better than another without first agreeing on the criteria for such a determination.
* The keyword static indicates that the method is h class method, associated with the class rather than object instances.
