Description

Symmetrized chi-squared distance between two discrete probability distributions on the same support (which can be a Cartesian product of q sets) , given the probabilities of the states (which are q-tuples) of the support.

Usage

1
ddchisqsympar(p1, p2)

Arguments

p1

array (or table) the dimension of which is q. The first probability distribution on the support.

p2

array (or table) the dimension of which is q. The second probability distribution on the support.

Details

The chi-squared distance between two discrete distributions p_1 and p_2 is given by:

∑_x{(p_1(x) - p_2(x))^2}/p_2(x)

Then the symmetrized chi-squared distance is given by the formula:

||p_1 - p_2|| = ∑_x{(p_1(x) - p_2(x))^2}/(p_1(x) + p_2(x))

# Example 1
p1 <- array(c(1/2, 1/2), dimnames = list(c("a", "b"))) 
p2 <- array(c(1/4, 3/4), dimnames = list(c("a", "b"))) 
ddchisqsympar(p1, p2)

# Example 2
x1 <- data.frame(x = factor(c("A", "A", "A", "B", "B", "B")),
                 y = factor(c("a", "a", "a", "b", "b", "b")))                 
x2 <- data.frame(x = factor(c("A", "A", "A", "B", "B")),
                 y = factor(c("a", "a", "b", "a", "b")))
p1 <- table(x1)/nrow(x1)                 
p2 <- table(x2)/nrow(x2)
