parametric search

a search done that fits a number of simultaneous criteria (the parameters of the search). For example, finding a house within one of three neighborhoods, $3-600,000, with at least 3 bedrooms and 2 baths.

A typical difficulty for users with this type of search is that they will overconstrain the search and get no results, so advanced search implementations will also find close matches by relaxing some of the constraints.
