scipy.spatial.distance.cityblock¶

scipy.spatial.distance.
cityblock
(u, v, w=None)[source]¶ Computes the City Block (Manhattan) distance.
Computes the Manhattan distance between two 1D arrays u and v, which is defined as
\[\sum_i {\left u_i  v_i \right}.\]Parameters: u : (N,) array_like
Input array.
v : (N,) array_like
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
Returns: cityblock : double
The City Block (Manhattan) distance between vectors u and v.
