How do I define a term and then use it in singular or plural context?
Here is the problem:
I am looking for a word which would collectively define the parameter setting for all the parameters in an algorithm.
Currently, I have defined a parameter setting as follows:
A parameter setting for an algorithm is defined as a set of values representing a specific value for each parameter in the algorithm.
What I mean is the set [a, b, c], where a, b, and c are the corresponding values of parameters A, B, and C for an algorithm.
I feel this definition is ambiguous, as "parameter setting" can mean a setting for a particular parameter in an algorithm (not for the set).
