scipy.spatial.distance.rogerstanimoto(u, v, w=None)[source]

Compute the Rogers-Tanimoto dissimilarity between two boolean 1-D arrays.

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

$\frac{R} {c_{TT} + c_{FF} + R}$

where $$c_{ij}$$ is the number of occurrences of $$\mathtt{u[k]} = i$$ and $$\mathtt{v[k]} = j$$ for $$k < n$$ and $$R = 2(c_{TF} + c_{FT})$$.

Parameters: u : (N,) array_like, bool Input array. v : (N,) array_like, bool Input array. w : (N,) array_like, optional The weights for each value in u and v. Default is None, which gives each value a weight of 1.0 rogerstanimoto : double The Rogers-Tanimoto dissimilarity between vectors u and v.

Examples

>>> from scipy.spatial import distance
>>> distance.rogerstanimoto([1, 0, 0], [0, 1, 0])
0.8
>>> distance.rogerstanimoto([1, 0, 0], [1, 1, 0])
0.5
>>> distance.rogerstanimoto([1, 0, 0], [2, 0, 0])
-1.0
