scipy.spatial.distance.wminkowski¶

scipy.spatial.distance.
wminkowski
(u, v, p, w)[source]¶ Computes the weighted Minkowski distance between two 1D arrays. The weighted Minkowski distance between u and v, defined as
\[\left(\sum{(w_i (u_i  v_i)^p)}\right)^{1/p}.\]Parameters: u : (N,) array_like
Input array.
v : (N,) array_like
Input array.
p : int
The order of the norm of the difference \({uv}_p\).
w : (N,) array_like
The weight vector.
Returns: wminkowski : double
The weighted Minkowski distance between vectors u and v.
Notes
wminkowski
is DEPRECATED. It implements a definition where weights are powered. It is recommended to use the weighted version ofminkowski
instead. This function will be removed in a future version of scipy.
