# ruzicka: Ruzicka or weighted Jaccard distance In kylebittinger/abdiv: Alpha and Beta Diversity Measures

## Description

Ruzicka or weighted Jaccard distance

## Usage

 1 ruzicka(x, y) 

## Arguments

 x, y Numeric vectors.

## Details

For vectors x and y, the Ruzicka distance is defined as

d(x, y) = 1 - \frac{∑_i \min(x, y)}{∑_i \max(x, y)}.

Relation to other definitions:

• Equivalent to vegdist() with method = "jaccard".

• Related to the Bray-Curtis distance, d_r = 2 d_{bc} / (1 + d_{bc}).

## Value

The Ruzicka distance between x and y. The distance is not defined if all elements in x and y are zero, and we return NaN in this case.
