scipy.spatial.distance.correlation¶

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

Computes the correlation distance between two 1-D arrays.

The correlation distance between u and v, is defined as

$1 - \frac{(u - \bar{u}) \cdot (v - \bar{v})} {{||(u - \bar{u})||}_2 {||(v - \bar{v})||}_2}$

where $$\bar{u}$$ is the mean of the elements of u and $$x \cdot y$$ is the dot product of $$x$$ and $$y$$.

Parameters: u : (N,) array_like Input array. v : (N,) array_like Input array. correlation : double The correlation distance between 1-D array u and v.
