Here are some most common distance measures between two objects: 1. Euclidean: Usual square distance between the two vectors. Disadvantages: not scale invariant, not for negative correlations dxy = ∑ (xi − yi )2 2. Manhattan: Absolute distance between the two vectors. dxy = ∑ |xi − yi | 3. Maximum: Maximum distance between any two components of x and y dxy = max|xi − yi | 4.
