Dear Members,
I have two different dataframes with a different number of rows. I need to apply a set of functions to each possible combination of rows with one row coming from 1st dataframe and other from 2nd dataframe. Though I am able to perform this task using for loops, I feel that there must be a more efficient way to do it. An example case is given below. D1 and D2 are two dataframes. I need to evaluate D3 with one column as the Euclidean distance in the x-y plane and second column as squared difference of z values, of each row pair from D1 and D2.
D1<-data.frame(x=1:5,y=6:10,z=rnorm(5))
D2<-data.frame(x=19:30,y=41:52,z=rnorm(12))
D3<-data.frame(distance=integer(0),difference=integer(0))
for (i in 1:nrow(D1)){
for (j in 1:nrow(D2)) {
temp<-data.frame(distance=sqrt(sum((D1[i,1:2]-D2[j,1:2])^2)),difference=(D1[i,3]-D2[j,3])^2)
D3<-rbind(D3,temp)
}
}
Thank you
