Measuring and testing dependence by correlation of distances

Preprint, Other literature type English OPEN
Székely, Gábor J.; Rizzo, Maria L.; Bakirov, Nail K.;

Distance correlation is a new measure of dependence between random vectors. Distance covariance and distance correlation are analogous to product-moment covariance and correlation, but unlike the classical definition of correlation, distance correlation is zero only if ... View more
