- sklearn.metrics.pairwise.chi2_kernel(X, Y=None, gamma=1.0)¶
Compute the exponential chi-squared kernel between X and Y.
The chi-squared kernel is computed between each pair of rows in X and Y. X and Y have to be non-negative. This kernel is most commonly applied to histograms.
The chi-squared kernel is given by:
k(x, y) = exp(-gamma Sum [(x - y)^2 / (x + y)])
It can be interpreted as a weighted difference per entry.
