Computes the kernel distance for a kernel function even if it doesn't implement the IDistance interface. Can be used to check the proper implementation of the distance function.

Namespace:  Accord.Statistics
Assembly:  Accord.Statistics (in Accord.Statistics.dll) Version: 3.8.0
public static double Distance(
	this IKernel kernel,
	double[] x,
	double[] y
Request Example View Source


Type: Accord.Statistics.KernelsIKernel
The kernel function whose distance needs to be evaluated.
Type: SystemDouble
An input point x given in input space.
Type: SystemDouble
An input point y given in input space.

Return Value

Type: Double
The distance between x and y in kernel (feature) space.
