choclo.point.kernel_pot(easting_p, northing_p, upward_p, easting_q, northing_q, upward_q, distance)[source]#

The inverse of the distance between the two points

Important

The coordinates of the two points must be in Cartesian coordinates and have the same units.

Parameters:
easting_pfloat

Easting coordinate of point $$\mathbf{p}$$.

northing_pfloat

Northing coordinate of point $$\mathbf{p}$$.

upward_pfloat

Upward coordinate of point $$\mathbf{p}$$.

easting_qfloat

Easting coordinate of point $$\mathbf{q}$$.

northing_qfloat

Northing coordinate of point $$\mathbf{q}$$.

upward_qfloat

Upward coordinate of point $$\mathbf{q}$$.

distancefloat

Euclidean distance between points $$\mathbf{p}$$ and $$\mathbf{q}$$.

Returns:
kernelfloat

Value of the kernel function.

Notes

Given two points $$\mathbf{p} = (x_p, y_p, z_p)$$ and $$\mathbf{q} = (x_q, y_q, z_q)$$ defined in a Cartesian coordinate system, compute the following kernel function:

$k_V(\mathbf{p}, \mathbf{q}) = \frac{ 1 }{ \lVert \mathbf{p} - \mathbf{q} \rVert_2 }$

where $$\lVert \cdot \rVert_2$$ refer to the $$L_2$$ norm (the Euclidean distance between $$\mathbf{p}$$ and $$\mathbf{q}$$).
