## Chebyshev distance

### Description

The Chebyshev distance is the maximum absolute difference between the vector elements.

### Usage

```
chebyshev(x, y)
```

### Arguments

`x` , `y` |
Numeric vectors |

### Details

For vectors `x`

and `y`

, the Chebyshev distance is defined as

`d(x, y) = \max_i |x_i - y_i|.`

Relation to other definitions:

Equivalent to the

`chebyshev()`

function in`scipy.spatial.distance`

.

### Value

The Chebyshev distance between `x`

and `y`

.

### Examples

```
x <- c(15, 6, 4, 0, 3, 0)
y <- c(10, 2, 0, 1, 1, 0)
chebyshev(x, y) # should be 5
```
