# scipy.spatial.distance.hamming¶

scipy.spatial.distance.hamming(u, v)

Computes the Hamming distance between two n-vectors u and v, which is simply the proportion of disagreeing components in u and v. If u and v are boolean vectors, the Hamming distance is

where is the number of occurrences of and for .

Parameters : u : ndarray An -dimensional vector. v : ndarray An -dimensional vector. d : double The Hamming distance between vectors u and v.
