Main Article Content
In the present paper, the geometrical properties of a topological space endowed with a similarity was studied. Its relation with weighted quasi-metrics and Finsler metrics of Randers type was discussed. Finally, some applications to bioinformatics and computer science by relating similarities to dynamic programming algorithms are considered. In conclusion, the space containing the real-world data is non-symmetric and non-linear.
Keywords: Finsler metrics; similarity function; weighted quasi-metrics
