COPADS, I: Distance Coefficients between Two Lists or Sets


Abstract


The similarity between two objects can be denoted as a scalar distance between them, calculated by comparing the common regions with respect to all possible regions. However, there are many methods in computing the distance as the weightages given to each region may differ. This article presents a collection of 35 distance coefficient measures with worked examples. These codes are licensed under Lesser General Public Licence version 3.
