calculation of distance using Kullback–Leibler divergence

... for each point (1st value of plot 1 and 1st value of plot 2) individually in the two plots and calculate their over lap, and finally sum all the overlaps which we get from each point in the plots. If the overlap is perfect on x- axis and also on y - axis then fit should be 1 or 100% and as there ...
