Euclidean Distance is the most common use of distance. In most cases when people said about distance , they will refer to Euclidean distance. Euclidean distance or simply 'distance' examines the root of square differences between coordinates of a pair of objects.
Point A has coordinate (0, 3, 4, 5) and point B has coordinate (7, 6, 3, 1). The Euclidean Distance between point A and B is The pattern of Euclidean distance in 2dimension is circular. When the sink is on the center, it forms concentric circles around the center. Euclidean distance is a special case of Minkowski distance with Pseudo code of Euclidean Distance Given: vector x1 and x2, each vector is a coordinate in N dimension function EuclideanDistance dist=0 for d=1 to N // d = dimension dist=dist+(x1[d]x2[d])^2 next return sqrt(dist ) end function <Content  Previous  Next >
