### Data 5

#### Distance between two words

After five steps of the computation we get a file of the following form:

The first line contains lengths of the two given words: 6 letters in "WHYQDC" (Zedekia) and 5 letters in "HYNTM" (Matanya); the length of the Book follows. An empty line does not matter. In the next line, the numbers -2, -2, -2 are perturbation parameters, and the number 2.377977e+05 is the measure of proximity between the words, computed by comparing families of equally perturbed ELS's, as described in "Step 4-5". The same for other combinations of perturbation parameters. The meaning of the measure of proximity is explained in the paper [WRR94] as follows. Very roughly, it measures the maximum closeness of the more noteworthy appearances of the words as ELS's in Genesis - the closer they are, the larger is the measure of proximity.

The numbers are represented in the scientific notation: 2.377977e+05 means 2.377977 * 105 = 237,797.7 . They are large numbers, which does not matter (they were not divided by 78,064 but multiplied by 100, see "Step 4-5"). Note however that unperturbed ELS's gave a larger number 1.488219e+06 = 1,488,219 than perturbed ELS's. It does not happen for another word pair, "T\$NBNB" (Benbenest) and "CYWWRWH" (Horowitz):
