parallelepiped classifier or decision rule:  A simple form of automated computer interpretation slightly more complex than boxcar interpretation.  For parallelepiped classification, the boundaries between classes need not be rectangular or parallel to the axes.  A parallelepiped area representing the location of each material sought is prism-shaped in the 2-, 3-, or n-dimensional distribution of the available multivariable images.  (See also: boxcar classifier)
