Abstract Various distance functions, defined as different optimization problems with respect to a technology set, are frequently used to characterize technology in theoretical economics as well as in efficiency and productivity analysis. In this study we establish a new relationship between the Shephard's input and output distance functions and the directional distance function that accounts for both input and output directions.
