Distance geometry is the characterization and study of sets of points based only on given values of the distances between member pairs.
Therefore distance geometry has immediate relevance where distance values are determined or considered, such as in surveying, cartography and physics.
Therefore the distance from A to B is no bigger than the length of the straight-line path from A to C plus the length of the straight-line path from C to B.

One might attempt to define the distance between two non-empty subsets of a given set as the infimum of the distances between any two of their respective points, which would agree with the every-day use of the word.
Distance is a scalar quantity, containing only a magnitude, whereas displacement is an equivalent vector quantity containing both magnitude and direction.
The distance covered by a vehicle (often recorded by an odometer), person, animal, object, etc. should be distinguished from the distance from starting point to end point, even if latter is taken to mean e.g.

The Chebyshev expansions of a scaled arctangent are neater, namely: Given k>0, define q = k / (1 + (1 + k^2)^(1/2)), and then arctan(k*x) = 2 * sum(n=0 to inf.) ((-1)^n * q^(2*n+1)/(2*n+1)) * T_(2*n+1)(x) In particular, for k=1 and x=1, the series converges (note q=1/(1+sqrt(2))) but the effect is not very spectacular.
This means that when we use m+1 terms of a Chebyshev expansion of a function f on [-1,1], and then drop the (m+1)st term c_(m+1)*T_(m+1)(x) then we commit an extra (uniformly bounded) error of size exactly abs(c_(m+1)).
Chebyshev expansions (and other expansions into polynomials satisfying recursive relations) can be evaluated using a "Clenshaw scheme" (see reference).

The two dimensional Manhattan distance also has circles in the form of squares, with side length √2r, at an angle of π/4 to the coordinate axes, so the planar Chebyshev distance can be viewed as equivalent by rotation and scaling to the planar Manhattan distance.
In chess, the distance between squares, in terms of moves necessary for a king, is given by the Chebyshev distance, hence the second name.

This can be viewed in two equivalent ways: multiplying by 3 stretches all values; it triples the distance between 1/2 and 0, as shown by the arrow at the left pointing from 1/2 to 3/2.
Chebyshev's theorem is properly a statement about moments of a distribution, so this is the right place to discuss it.
Chebyshev's inequality is rather crude: in the figure you can see the gray area is much greater than the green area.

It has the property that distances along any line-of-sight will be accurate within a factor of 2/sqrt(2), and distances along the same line of sight will compare accurately.
Where the manhattan distance is accurate within 2/sqrt(2), the Chebyshev distance is accurate within sqrt(2)/2.
Typically you want to use the manhattan distance when it's important not to underestimate and the Chebyshev distance when it's important not to overestimate.

A distance between two points P and Q in a metric space is d(P,Q), where d is the distance function that defines the given metric space.
Alternatively, the distance between sets may indicate "how different they are", by taking the supremum over one set of the distance from a point in that set to the other set, and conversely, and taking the larger of the two values (Hausdorff distance).

Species themselves can be seen as vectors in the COG space, and distances between such vectors can be used to build the species' phylogeny [26]; this aspect is not considered in the current work, except for illustrative purposes (Figure 2, tree at the top).
Apparently, however, correlation distance is more accurate in assigning to genes to metabolic pathways as defined in the COG database than to larger KEGG charts (Figure 3a and G.V.G. and A.R.M., unpublished data).
It has been noted that a high 'co-occurrence score' (essentially, the distance between phyletic patterns based on the complement of mutual information) is less indicative of a functional link than chromosomal proximity of genes or translational fusion of domains [28].
