dnrm2

NPM version Build Status Coverage Status Dependencies

Computes the L2 norm of x.

The L2 norm is defined as

L2 norm definition.

Installation

$ npm install blas-dnrm2

Usage

var dnrm2 = require( 'blas-dnrm2' );

dnrm2( N, x, stride, offset )

Computes the L2 norm.

var x = [ -2, 1, 3, -5, 4, 0, -1, -3 ];
 
var nrm = dnrm2( x.length, x, 1, 0 );
// returns ~8.062

The function accepts the following parameters:

  • N: number of accessed elements.
  • x: input array or typed array.
  • stride: index increment.
  • offset: starting index.

The N, stride, and offset parameters determine which elements in x are accessed when computing the L2 norm. For example, to select every other value starting from the second element,

var x = [ -2, 1, 3, -5, 4, 0, -1, -3 ];
 
var N = Math.floor( x.length / 2 );
var stride = 2;
var offset = 1;
 
var nrm = dnrm2( N, x, stride, offset );
// returns ~5.916

If any of the following conditions are met

  • N < 0
  • stride <= 0
  • offset < 0

the function returns undefined. If N = 0, the function returns 0.

Notes

  • This module corresponds to the BLAS level 1 function dnrm2.

Examples

var dnrm2 = require( 'blas-dnrm2' );
 
var rand;
var sign;
var x;
var i;
 
= new Float64Array( 100 );
for ( i = 0; i < x.length; i++ ) {
    rand = Math.round( Math.random() * 100 );
    sign = Math.random();
    if ( sign < 0.5 ) {
        sign = -1;
    } else {
        sign = 1;
    }
    x[ i ] = sign * rand;
}
 
console.log( dnrm2( x.length, x, 1, 0 ) );

Tests

Unit

This repository uses tape for unit tests. To run the tests, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:

$ make test

All new feature development should have corresponding unit tests to validate correct functionality.

Test Coverage

This repository uses Istanbul as its code coverage tool. To generate a test coverage report, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:

$ make test-cov

Istanbul creates a ./reports/coverage directory. To access an HTML version of the report,

$ make view-cov

Browser Support

This repository uses Testling for browser testing. To run the tests in a (headless) local web browser, execute the following command in the top-level application directory:

$ make test-browsers

To view the tests in a local web browser,

$ make view-browser-tests
