cupyx.scipy.spatial.distance.minkowski(u, v, p)[source]#

Compute the Minkowski distance between two 1-D arrays.

Parameters
• u (array_like) – Input array of size (N,)

• v (array_like) – Input array of size (N,)

• p (float) – The order of the norm of the difference $${\|u-v\|}_p$$. Note that for $$0 < p < 1$$, the triangle inequality only holds with an additional multiplicative factor, i.e. it is only a quasi-metric.

Returns

The Minkowski distance between vectors u and v.

Return type

minkowski (double)
