Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References Examples
This function computes and returns the distance matrix computed by
using the specified distance measure to compute the distances between
the rows of a data matrix. Instead of the row values as in the case of
dist
, the successive differences of the row values
are used.
1 
x 
a numeric matrix, data frame or 
method 
the distance measure to be used. This must be one of

diag 
logical value indicating whether the diagonal of the
distance matrix should be printed by 
upper 
logical value indicating whether the upper triangle of the
distance matrix should be printed by 
p 
The power of the Minkowski distance.

It's a simple wrapper function arround dist
. For
more details about the distances we refer to dist
.
The function may be helpful, if there is a shift w.r.t.\ the measured
bands; e.g.\ c(550, 500, 300, 250)
vs.\ c(510, 460, 260, 210)
.
diffDist
returns an object of class "dist"
; cf. dist
.
