+/**
+ * A similarity algorithm indicating the percentage of matched characters
+ * between two character sequences.
+ *
+ * <p>
+ * The Sørensen–Dice coefficient is a statistic used for comparing the
+ * similarity of two samples. It was independently developed by the botanists
+ * Thorvald Sørensen and Lee Raymond Dice, who published in 1948 and 1945
+ * respectively. The index is known by several other names, especially
+ * Sørensen–Dice index, Sørensen index and Dice's coefficient. Other variations
+ * include the "similarity coefficient" or "index", such as Dice similarity
+ * coefficient (DSC).
+ * </p>
+ *
+ * <p>
+ * This implementation is based on the Sørensen–Dice similarity algorithm from
+ * <a href=
+ * "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%C3%B8rensen%E2%80%93Dice_coefficient">
+ * http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%C3%B8rensen%E2%80%93Dice_coefficient</a>.

 Review comment:
   Maybe include "night" and "nacth" = 0.25? This example is in the Wikipedia page, and could
be a good standard for testing this metric. I tried a [Python library](https://github.com/orsinium/textdistance/issues/18),
and it gave a weird  0.6 value instead. A [JavaScript library](https://github.com/patrickkang/sorensen-dice/blob/master/test/test.js#L22)
also uses this same example in their tests.
