scipy.spatial.distance.sqeuclidean(u, v)[source]

Computes the squared Euclidean distance between two 1-D arrays.

The squared Euclidean distance between u and v is defined as

${||u-v||}_2^2.$
Parameters: u : (N,) array_like Input array. v : (N,) array_like Input array. sqeuclidean : double The squared Euclidean distance between vectors u and v.
