Recall from Chapter 2.1 that a linear threshold function (abbreviated LTF) is a boolean-valued function $f : \{-1,1\}^n \to \{-1,1\}$ that can be represented as \begin{equation} \label{eqn:generic-LTF} f(x) = \mathrm{sgn}(a_0 + a_1 x_1 + \cdots + a_n x_n) \end{equation} for some constants $a_0, a_1, \dots, a_n \in {\mathbb R}$.
