public interface SequenceDistanceMeasurer extends SequenceDistanceMeasurerDouble
Implement this interface, SequenceDistanceMeasurer, to define a distance metric for sequences. A sequence may have duplicate elements, unlike a Permutation which must have unique elements. Some SequenceDistanceMeasurers may require the pair of sequences to be the same length, while others do not have that requirement. Some SequenceDistanceMeasurers may require the pair of sequences to contain the same set of elements, while others do not have that requirement. Implementations of this interface compute distances that are integer valued.
This interface extends the
SequenceDistanceMeasurerDouble
interface, providing default implementations of all of that superinterface's distancef methods by delegating the behavior to the various distance methods. In this way, implementers of SequenceDistanceMeasurer should not have a reason to implement the distancef methods ofSequenceDistanceMeasurerDouble
.If your sequences are guaranteed not to contain duplicates, and the pair is guaranteed to contain the same set of elements, and are of the same length, then consider instead using the classes that implement the
PermutationDistanceMeasurer
interface. Those classes are specifically for distance between permutations of the integers from 0 to N1.
