Compute the Manhattan distance between two probability distributions. This distance is also known as the taxicab distance, the city block distance, the rectilinear distance, and the snake distance.
## S4 method for signature 'Distribution,Distribution' Manhattan(p1, p2)
p2 denote the vectors of probability mass assigned
by two distributions defined on the same state space. Then, the Manhattan
p2 is given by
sum(abs(p1 - p2)).
The Manhattan distance is equal to the 1-metric. It is also equal to twice the trace distance.
