I have about 30 lists of unequal length (some of which are triplicates of the data), corresponding to metrics relating to nodes of different graphs. I want to compare their similarity using a distance metric, but was unsure which method I can use given the data lists are of unequal length. I was exploring using dynamic time warping, but was wondering if there is any other more basic method.
For example, I was a considering creating histograms with same bin edges and number of bins for each list and using a distance metric on the frequency, but I am not sure how to go about this using python, or if there's a function/package that does this already. Is this even a "good" way of doing it?
I'm also interested in finding a way to measure the statistical significance of the distance measures between the different graphs.
This is a lot in one question, I am new to this and appreciate any help. Thank you in advance!
