# numpy.linalg.matrix_norm#

linalg.matrix_norm(x, /, *, keepdims=False, ord='fro')[source]#

Computes the matrix norm of a matrix (or a stack of matrices) `x`.

This function is Array API compatible.

Parameters:
xarray_like

Input array having shape (…, M, N) and whose two innermost dimensions form `MxN` matrices.

keepdimsbool, optional

If this is set to True, the axes which are normed over are left in the result as dimensions with size one. Default: False.

ord{1, -1, 2, -2, inf, -inf, ‘fro’, ‘nuc’}, optional

The order of the norm. For details see the table under `Notes` in `numpy.linalg.norm`.

Examples

```>>> from numpy import linalg as LA
>>> a = np.arange(9) - 4
>>> a
array([-4, -3, -2, ...,  2,  3,  4])
>>> b = a.reshape((3, 3))
>>> b
array([[-4, -3, -2],
[-1,  0,  1],
[ 2,  3,  4]])
```
```>>> LA.matrix_norm(b)
7.745966692414834
>>> LA.matrix_norm(b, ord='fro')
7.745966692414834
>>> LA.matrix_norm(b, ord=np.inf)
9.0
>>> LA.matrix_norm(b, ord=-np.inf)
2.0
```
```>>> LA.matrix_norm(b, ord=1)
7.0
>>> LA.matrix_norm(b, ord=-1)
6.0
>>> LA.matrix_norm(b, ord=2)
