# scipy.spatial.distance.russellrao¶

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

Computes the Russell-Rao dissimilarity between two boolean 1-D arrays.

The Russell-Rao dissimilarity between two boolean 1-D arrays, u and v, is defined as

$\frac{n - c_{TT}} {n}$

where $$c_{ij}$$ is the number of occurrences of $$\mathtt{u[k]} = i$$ and $$\mathtt{v[k]} = j$$ for $$k < n$$.

Parameters: u : (N,) array_like, bool Input array. v : (N,) array_like, bool Input array. russellrao : double The Russell-Rao dissimilarity between vectors u and v.
