Distance measurement

"... the Zollverein in the 19 th century 1 Changes in trade institutions, such as the abolishment of tariff barriers, have a potentially strong impact on economic development. The Zollverein, the 1834 customs union between German states, erased borders in much of central Europe. This paper investigates t ..."

the Zollverein's economic impact through a study of urban population and its growth in the German state of Saxony. A model of the effect of market access on urban growth is combined with an extensive data set on town populations in Saxony and its neighbors as well as an improved distance measure based
Comparing Images Using the Hausdorff Distance
 IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON PATTERN ANALYSIS AND MACHINE INTELLIGENCE
, 1993
"... The Hausdorff distance measures the extent to which each point of a `model' set lies near some point of an `image' set and vice versa. Thus this distance can be used to determine the degree of resemblance between two objects that are superimposed on one another. In this paper we provide ef ..."

Recognizing action at a distance
 PROCEEDINGS OF THE IEEE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COMPUTER VISION
, 2003
"... Our goal is to recognize human actions at a distance, at resolutions where a whole person may be, say, 30 pixels tall. We introduce a novel motion descriptor based on optical flow measurements in a spatiotemporal volume for each stabilized human figure, and an associated similarity measure to be us ..."

An Experiment with Distance Measures for Clustering ∗
"... Distance measure plays an important role in clustering data points. Choosing the right distance measure for a given dataset is a nontrivial problem. In this paper, we study various distance measures and their effect on different clustering techniques. In addition to the standard Euclidean distance, ..."

Predicting Internet Network Distance with CoordinatesBased Approaches
 In INFOCOM
, 2001
"... In this paper, we propose to use coordinatesbased mechanisms in a peertopeer architecture to predict Internet network distance (i.e. roundtrip propagation and transmission delay) . We study two mechanisms. The first is a previously proposed scheme, called the triangulated heuristic, which is bas ..."

their own coordinates, these approaches allow end hosts to compute their interhost distances as soon as they discover each other. Moreover coordinates are very efficient in summarizing interhost distances, making these approaches very scalable. By performing experiments using measured Internet distance
Distance Metric Learning, With Application To Clustering With SideInformation
 ADVANCES IN NEURAL INFORMATION PROCESSING SYSTEMS 15
, 2003
"... Many algorithms rely critically on being given a good metric over their inputs. For instance, data can often be clustered in many "plausible" ways, and if a clustering algorithm such as Kmeans initially fails to find one that is meaningful to a user, the only recourse may be for the us ..."

examples. In this paper, we present an algorithm that, given examples of similar (and, if desired, dissimilar) pairs of points in R , learns a distance metric over R that respects these relationships. Our method is based on posing metric learning as a convex optimization problem, which allows us
An XML Distance Measure
 Proceedings of The 2005 International Conference on Data Mining (DMIN'05
"... Abstract Distance measures are used extensively in data mining and other types of data analysis. Such measures assume it is possible to compute for each pair of domain objects their mutual distance. Much of the research in distance measures concentrates on objects either in attributevalue represen ..."

Visualizing the evaluation of distance measures
"... This paper describes the development and use of an interface for visually evaluating distance measures. The combination of multidimensional scaling plots, histograms and tables allows for different stages of overview and detail. The interdisciplinary project Rulebased search in text databases with ..."

Distance measures as prior probabilities
, 2000
"... Many learning algorithms, especially nonparametric ones, use distance measures as a source of prior knowledge about the domain. This paper shows how the work of Baxter and Yianilos provides a formal equivalence between distance measures and prior probability distributions in Bayesian inference. The ..."

An Unsupervised Bayesian Distance Measure
 Proceedings of the Fifth European Workshop on Casebased Reasoning (EWCBR’2000). LNAI1898

"... . We introduce a distance measure based on the idea that two vectors are considered similar if they lead to similar predictive probability distributions. The suggested approach avoids the scaling problem inherent to many alternative techniques as the method automatically transforms the original ..."
