Calling Sequence

Norm(A, p)

NormDifference(A, B, p)

Parameters

A, B

-

Arrays of real or complex numeric values; signals

p

-

(optional) infinity, 1 or 2; type of norm

Description

• 

The Norm(A, p) command returns the norm of the array V.

• 

The default value of p is infinity. In this case, the maximum of the absolute values of the elements of A is returned.

• 

If p is 1, then the L1 norm of A, defined as the sum of the absolute values of the elements of A, is returned.

• 

If p is 2, then the L2 norm of A is returned. This is defined by the following formula, with N being the number of elements in A.

k=1Nak2

• 

The NormDifference(A, B, p) command returns the norm of the difference of the arrays A and B, with p defined as above. A and B must have the same number of elements.

• 

Before the code performing the computation runs, Maple converts each input Array to a hardware datatype, first attempting float[8] and subsequently complex[8], unless it already has one of these datatypes. For this reason, it is most efficient the input Arrays have one of these datatypes beforehand.

Thread Safety

• 

The SignalProcessing[Norm] and SignalProcessing[NormDifference] commands are thread-safe as of Maple 17.

• 

For more information on thread safety, see index/threadsafe.
