Minkowski distance

The Minkowski distances are the set of distance metrics with different degree LaTex Math image. and are widely used for distance computation in different algorithms. The most commonly used distance metric, Euclidean distance, is also a Minkowski distance with LaTex Math image..

Computational methods

Mathematical formulation

Computing
Given a set
U
of
n
feature vectors LaTex Math image. of dimension
k
and a set
V
of
m
feature vectors LaTex Math image. of dimension
k
, the problem is to compute the Minkowski distance LaTex Math image. for any pair of input vectors:
LaTex Math image.
where LaTex Math image..
Computation method:
dense
The method defines Minkowski distance metric, which is used in other algorithms for the distance computation. There are no separate computation mode to compute distance manually.
