Minkowski Distances for Face Recognition

Pp. 9-30 (22)

Enrico Vezzetti and Federica Marcolin


Minkowski distances really deserve a whole chapter for theirselves. Depending on the value choice of parameter p, explained here below in the introduction, the concept of Minkowski distance is split up in different distance measures, which are typically known as taxicab (p=1), Euclidean (p=2), and Chebyshev distances (
