Normed distances link A norm is a function that assigns a strictly positive length to each vector in a vector space. link Minkowski is generalized. p_root(sum(xi-yi)^p). "p" = ? (1, 2, ..) for below. L1: Manhattan/city-block/taxicab. abs(x2-x1)+abs(y2-y1). Grid-like distance (triangle legs). Preferred for high-dim space. L2: Euclidean. sqrt((x2-x1)^2+(y2-y1)^2. sqrt(dot-product). Straight-line distance; min distance (Pythagorean triangle edge) Others: Mahalanobis, Chebyshev (p=inf), etc Dot product A type of inner product. Outer-product: lies outside the involved planes. Inner-product: dot product lies inside the planes/axes involved link. Dot product: inner product on a finite dimensional Euclidean space link Cosine (normalized dot)
