I have a set of points with xy coordinates and want the euclidean distance between each point including the point and itself. So if my points in xy space are list = {{1, 1}, {2, 2}, {3, 3}} for example, I want the distance from {1, 1} to {1, 1}, {1, 1} to {2, 2}, and {2, 2} to {3, 3} etc. for each point for a total of 9 distances all together. The Euclidean Distance function removes the redundant distances that I want retained in the results. I have been using this code just to play with data but would like to be able to expand up to 500+ points: > > list = {{1, 1}, {2, 2}, {3, 3}} > EuclideanDistance @@@ Subsets[list, {2}] > > Any ideas on how to get the euclidean distance between all the points including redundants and self references? > >
