# scipy.spatial.distance.sokalsneath¶

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

Computes the Sokal-Sneath dissimilarity between two boolean 1-D arrays.

The Sokal-Sneath dissimilarity between u and v,

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

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 sokalsneath : double The Sokal-Sneath dissimilarity between vectors u and v.
