pydist2
pydist2 is a python library that provides a set of methods for calculating distances between observations. There are two main classes:
 pdist1 which calculates the pairwise distances between observations in one matrix and returns a distance matrix.
 pdist2 computes the distances between observations in two matrices and also returns a distance matrix.
Usage
pdist1(P, metric = "euclidean", matrix=False)
pdist2(P, Q, metric = "minkowski", exp = 3)
Arguments:
 two matrices P and Q.
 metric: The distance function to use.
 exp: The exponent of the Minkowski distance.
Installation
The pydist2 library is available on Pypi. Thus, you can install the latest available version using pip:
$pip install pydist2
Supported Python versions
pydist2 has been tested with Python 3.7 and 3.8.

Progress & Features

[X] Commit the first code's version.

[X] Support the following list of distances.

[X] Display the distance in a matrix form(a combination for each pair of points):
>>> X = np.array([[100, 100],[0, 100],[100, 0], [500, 400], [300, 600]]) >>> pdist1(X,matrix=True) # by default, metric = 'euclidean' array([[100. , 100. , 100. , 0. , 100. ], [100. , 100. , 100. , 100. , 0. ], [500. , 100. , 100. , 500. , 400. ], [538.5165, 100. , 100. , 300. , 600. ], [141.4214, 0. , 100. , 100. , 0. ], [583.0952, 0. , 100. , 500. , 400. ], [583.0952, 0. , 100. , 300. , 600. ], [565.6854, 100. , 0. , 500. , 400. ], [632.4555, 100. , 0. , 300. , 600. ], [282.8427, 500. , 400. , 300. , 600. ]])
where the first column represents the distance between each pair of observations. for instance, the euclidean distance between (100. , 100.) and ( 0. , 100.) is 100.
 [X] Support numpy arrays of the same size only.
