Subject [jira] Commented: (HAMA-170) Implementation of Matrix.Norm
Date Fri, 08 May 2009 09:51:45 GMT
```
[ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HAMA-170?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12707294#action_12707294

Edward J. Yoon commented on HAMA-170:
-------------------------------------

Oh, Thanks.

As you said, "The 1-norm is obtained by finding the sum of the absolute value of all the elements
in each column of the matrix. The largest of these sums is the 1-norm. In mathematical terms,
the 1-norm is simply the maximum absolute column sum of the matrix."

So,  if A =  {{1, 3}, {2, 4}} then ||A||1 = max(3, 7) = 7

Comments should be fixed. But, fortunately 1-Norm was correctly implemented as below.

1-NormMapper:
for(Map.Entry<Writable, Writable> e : value.entrySet()) {
rowSum += Math.abs(((DoubleEntry) e.getValue()).getValue());
}

1-NormReducer:
while (values.hasNext()) {
max = Math.max(values.next().get(), max);
}
