octave_distance, an Octave code which estimates the typical distance between a pair of points randomly selected from the surface or interior of a geometric object such as a circle, disk, sphere, cube.

- subset_distance_hamming.m, computes the Hamming distance between two subsets.
- subset_distance_histogram.m, displays a histogram from N samples of pairwise distances.
- subset_distance_pdf.m, displays a plot of the exact PDF of the pairwise distances.
- subset_distance_stats.m, estimates the mean and variance of the pairwise distance, using sampling.
- subset_sample.m, returns a random subset of an M set.
