  • Minkowski Distance

    The Minkowski distance defines the distance between two points in a normed vector space.

    $$ X=(x_{1},x_{2},...,x_{n}
    $$ $$ Y=(y_{1},y_{2},...,y_{n})
    $$ $$ D(X,Y)=(\sum_{i=1}^n|x_{i}-y_{i}|^p)^\frac{1}{p} $$

    When p = 1 or 2, the Minkowski distance corresponds to the Manhattan distance or the Euclidean distance, respectively.

    The plot is a collection of Voronoi diagrams, partitioning the space into sub-spaces based on the distance to a set of pre-defined points/seeds.

    The p for Minkowski distance used in each sub-plot is shown below.

    0.1 0.4 0.5
    0.7 The points 1 (Manhattan)
    1.5 2 (Euclidean) 100
