You can use numpy's vectorization capabilities to speed up the calculation.

It's more math knowledge that you should knew. Distance between two objects is a length of vector between their coordinates. Farseer uses Xna type Vector2 or Vector3. Just subtract two needed vectors to get the needed one and get Length through the method on the corresponding vector type. Fixture's coordinates...

Finding the minimum distance to each triangle from the point and find the smallest minimum distance from them is the only way.

Just record the displacement every x seconds or so, and sum the displacements. You will have a fairly good approximation. Or just record the points at different times first, and then do the calculation at the end. var checkpoints = [], interval = null; function record() { checkpoints.push( /* current...

What distance function to use depends on your concrete task. I guess cosine similarity may be what you want....

Whether or not looking at distances of the means of your data-sets is good enough depends entirely on your data-sets. In general, the mean is sensitive to outliers. This means that if your data-sets have a few values that are wildly different than the others, they will have a notable...

no wonder. apart from CV_COMP_BHATTACHARYYA not being a valid compare flag for matchTemplate , both CV_COMP_BHATTACHARYYA and TM_CCORR_NORMED resolve to the same enum value 3 under the hood. so basically you're doing the very same thing twice....

It looks like you're having difficulties with scope. If you declare variables inside a block, like you do in the case of if (something) { double x = ...; }, the variables are visible only inside the declared block. If you later want to access these variables, you have to...

What you try to do is not possible if there is no structure in the list of points and they can really be random. Assume you have an algorithm that runs faster than in linear time, then in in your list of points there is one point B that is...
