Minkowski Mean
Minkowski mean is a generalization of arithmetic, quadratic and harmonic mean. Minkowski mean is defined as Example: When , we have Arithmetic mean
Example: When , we have Harmonic mean Example: When p=2, we have Quadratic mean However, we do not have a specific p in Minkowski mean to represent Geometric mean because Geometric mean is obtained through the limit of parameter p approaches 0, indicated by the formula below
Table below provides the summary of parameter to relate Minkowski generalized mean and other means.
