The k-nearest neighbours using the cosinus distance

Description

The k-nearest neighbours using the cosinus distance.

Usage

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

Arguments

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.

Details

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

Value

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.
