Returns

The distance between the two concepts in concept space.

Return type

float

pyphi.compute.distance.ces_distance(C1, C2)

Return the distance between two cause-effect structures.

Parameters
Returns

The distance between the two cause-effect structures in concept space.

Return type

float

pyphi.compute.distance.small_phi_ces_distance(C1, C2)

Return the difference in $$\varphi$$ between CauseEffectStructure.
