The k-nearest neighbours using the cosinus distance | R Documentation |

The k-nearest neighbours using the cosinus distance.

```
cosnn(xnew, x, k = 5, index = FALSE, rann = FALSE)
```

`xnew` |
The new data whose k-nearest neighbours are to be found. |

`x` |
The data, a numeric matrix with unit vectors. |

`k` |
The number of nearest neighbours, set to 5 by default. It can also be a vector with many values. |

`index` |
If you want the indices of the closest observations set this equal to TRUE. |

`rann` |
If you have large scale datasets and want a faster k-NN search, you can use kd-trees implemented in the R package "RANN". In this case you must set this argument equal to TRUE. |

The shortest distances or the indices of the k-nearest neighbours using the cosinus distance are returned.

A matrix with the shortest distance of each xnew from x, if index is FALSE, or the indices of the nearest neighbours of each xnew from x, if index is TRUE.
