The ESOV-distance {Compositional}R Documentation

The ESOV-distance

Description

The ESOV-distance.

Usage

esov(x)
esova(xnew, x)
es(x1, x2)

Arguments

x

A matrix with compositional data.

xnew

A matrix or a vector with new compositional data.

x1

A vector with compositional data.

x2

A vector with compositional data.

Details

The ESOV distance is calculated.

Value

For "esov" a matrix including the pairwise distances of all observations or the distances between xnew and x. For "esova" a matrix including the pairwise distances of all observations or the distances between xnew and x. For "es" a number, the ESOV distance between x1 and x2.
