ddhellinger | R Documentation |

Hellinger (or Matusita) distance between two multivariate (`q > 1`

) or univariate (`q = 1`

) discrete probability distributions, estimated from samples.

Let `p_1`

and `p_2`

denote the estimated probability distributions of the discrete samples `x_1`

and `x_2`

. The Matusita distance between the discrete probability distributions of the samples are computed using the `ddhellingerpar`

function.

The distance between the two probability distributions.
