### Chess pieces metrics in higher dimensions

A couple of days ago, I was thinking about applying the knight (the well-known piece of chess) metric to any cubic lattice $\mathbb{N}^k$, $k \in \mathbb{N}-\{0,1\}$.
I suddenly realized that, from $k ...

### Finding a tree with adjacency matrix near a given matrix

For defining a distance between trees, one can code them into $\mathbb{R}^n$ and use norms in $\mathbb{R}^n$ as distance. (For example we can use adjacency matrices as a tool for this coding) After ...

### Distance pairs in labeled directed graph

Suppose we have a simple directed graph with $n$ nodes and $m$ edges, and we label each edge from $1$ to $m$ (with distinct labels). Define the weighted "length" of a directed path to be the maximum ...

### Distance function and its approximation

An easy and quick question:
Consider a function $u\in C(\Omega)$, where $\Omega$ is a bounded domain in $\mathbb{R}^n$.
Define a function $Q$ that measures the distance of a point $(x,y) \in\mathbb{...

### Distance between two polyhedra that takes incidence structure into account

Suppose that we have two polyhedra $P_1$ and $P_2$ in $\mathbb{R}^3$. I would like to define such a metric $\rho(P_1, P_2)$ that depends on several factors, but currently I don't know how to do it ...

### Graph contained in a metric space

I have a metric space $X$ and a graph $G=(V,E)$ whose set of vertices is a subset $V\subset X$ (and $E$ is the set of edges, which is a symmetric subset of $V\times V$). For each $v\in V$, the set of ...

### Finding the farthest point from a set of other points

I have a set of nodes in a very large graph which I call Cluster Points. I also have for each point in the graph, the distance from each point in the Cluster point set.
For example: ...

### Of the standard distance metrics, which ones can/cannot be embedded in Euclidean space?

Given the discussion from:
Representability of finite metric spaces
it appears that a 1974 paper by Morgan gives the criteria for when a distance metric can be embedded in Euclidean space. My first ...

### Graphs with a unique transmission value

If $G$ is a graph with distance function $d(x,y)$ between vertices, the transmission of a vertex $x \in v(G)$ is defined as $\sigma_{x}=\sum_{y \neq x}{d(x,y)}$. I want to know if there is a known ...
