Used in parsnip::nearest_neighbor().

dist_power(range = c(1, 2), trans = NULL)

Arguments

range

A two-element vector holding the defaults for the smallest and largest possible values, respectively.

trans

A trans object from the scales package, such as scales::log10_trans() or scales::reciprocal_trans(). If not provided, the default is used which matches the units used in range. If no transformation, NULL.

Details

This parameter controls how distances are calculated. For example, dist_power = 1 corresponds to Manhattan distance while dist_power = 2 is Euclidean distance.
