(mathematics) | norm - A real-valued function modelling the length of a
vector. The norm must be homogeneous and symmetric and
fulfil the following condition: the shortest way to reach a
point is to go straight toward it. Every convex symmetric
closed surface surrounding point 0 introduces a norm by
means of Minkowski functional; all vectors that end on the
surface have the same norm then.The most popular norm is the Euclidean norm; it is calculated by summing up squares of all coordinates and taking the square root; this is the essence of Pythagorus's theorem. In the infinite-dimensional case, the sum is infinite or is replaced with an integral when the number of dimensions is uncountable. |
