Manhattan(p1, p2)

p1, p2 

Let p1
and p2
denote the vectors of probability mass assigned
by two distributions defined on the same state space. Then, the Manhattan
distance between p1
and p2
is given by sum(abs(p1  p2))
.
The Manhattan distance is equal to the 1metric. It is also equal to twice the trace distance.
The Manhattan distance between distributions p1
and p2
.
