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.

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))*
