# diss.CID: Complexity-Invariant Distance Measure For Time Series In TSclust: Time Series Clustering Utilities

## Description

Computes the distance based on the Euclidean distance corrected by the complexity estimation of the series.

## Usage

 1 diss.CID(x, y) 

## Arguments

 x Numeric vector containing the first of the two time series. y Numeric vector containing the second of the two time series.

## Details

This distance is defined

CID(x,y) = ED(x,y) \times CF(x,y)

where CF(x,y) is a complexity correction factor defined as:

max(CE(x), CE(y)) / min(CE(x), CE(y))

and CE(x) is a compexity estimate of a time series x. diss.CID therefore increases the distance between series with different complexities. If the series have the same complexity estimate, the distance defenerates Euclidean distance. The complexity is defined in diss.CID as:

CE(x) = sqrt( sum ( diff(x)^2 ) )

## Value

The computed dissimilarity.
