# The dccpp R Package

Fast computation of the distance covariance `dcov`

and
distance correlation `dcor`

. The computation cost is only O(n
log(n)) for the distance correlation (see Chaudhuri, Hu, 2019, arXiv, elsevier). The
functions are written entirely in C++ to speed up the computation.

## Installation

### Install from CRAN

The CRAN release is currently under preparation.

### Install from GitHub

You can install the latest stable release from GitHub using:

```
# install.packages("remotes")
remotes::install_github("BerriJ/dccpp")
```

## Usage

```
dcor(x, y) # To calculate the distance correlation
dcov(x, y) # To calculate the distance covariance
```
