Since you seem to be from Astrophysics/Cosmology background (I am assuming
you are jakevdp - the creator of astroML - if you are - I am lucky!), I can
explain my application scenario. I am trying to calculate the anisotropic
two-point correlation function something like done in rp_pi_tpcf
<http://halotools.readthedocs.io/en/latest/api/halotools.mock_observables.rp_pi_tpcf.html#halotools.mock_observables.rp_pi_tpcf>
or s_mu_tpcf
<http://halotools.readthedocs.io/en/latest/api/halotools.mock_observables.s_mu_tpcf.html#halotools.mock_observables.s_mu_tpcf>
using pairs (DD,DR,RR) calculated from BallTree.two_point_correlation
In halotools (
http://halotools.readthedocs.io/en/latest/function_usage/mock_observables_functions.html)
it is implemented using rectangular grids. I could calculate 2pcf with
custom metrics using one variable with BallTree as done in astroML. I
intend to find the anisotropic counter part.
Thanks & Regards,
Rohin
