manhattandistance

It computes Manhattan distance between two vectors or matrices of same length. If one of the inputs has one row and the other has 'm' rows, then distance is computed between one row and every other row. The more the distance is, the less similar the data points are.

Syntax

Distance = manhattandistance(X,Y)

Inputs

X
First input vector or matrix.
Type: double
Dimension: vector | matrix
Y
Second input vector or matrix.
Type: double
Dimension: vector | matrix

Outputs

Distance
The distance between two inputs.
Type: double
Dimension: vector | matrix

Example

Example of manhattandistance

x = [1, 2, 3];
y = [4, 5, 6];
distance = manhattandistance(x, y);

> distance
distance = 9
