Re: Absolute Value and Matrix Message #3 Posted by Michael de Estrada on 5 Nov 2013, 12:04 a.m., in response to message #1 by BruceTTT
That's because it returns the Frobenius (Euclidean) norm of the matrix array, which is the square root of the sum of the squares of the matrix elements. So for a 2x2 identity matrix it's sqrt (1^2+1^2) = sqrt (2). In the special case of a 2D or 3D vector, the absolute value is interpreted as the magnitude or length of the vector.
