## Overlap Coefficient

### Description

A method to calculate the overlap coefficient between two empirical distributions (that can be used as a measure of similarity between two samples).

### Usage

```
overlap(
x,
y,
method_density = "kernel",
method_auc = "trapezoid",
precision = 2^10,
extend = TRUE,
extend_scale = 0.1,
...
)
```

### Arguments

`x` |
Vector of x values. |

`y` |
Vector of x values. |

`method_density` |
Density estimation method. See |

`method_auc` |
Area Under the Curve (AUC) estimation method. See |

`precision` |
Number of points of density data. See the |

`extend` |
Extend the range of the x axis by a factor of |

`extend_scale` |
Ratio of range by which to extend the x axis. A value of |

`...` |
Currently not used. |

### Examples

```
library(bayestestR)
x <- distribution_normal(1000, 2, 0.5)
y <- distribution_normal(1000, 0, 1)
overlap(x, y)
plot(overlap(x, y))
```
