Hey guys,

How do I compute the distance between say two 2x 2 matrices A and B using matlab?
thanks

If you tell me what is your definition of 'distance' betweem 2 matrices
I'll tell how to do it in Matlab.

norm(A-B)
norm(A-B,'fro')
etc...

There are many ways to compute the distance! if by distance you mean the distance determine the differences between elements the two (comparing them like in image processing information theory) , you can use pdist or pdist2.

Otherwise you can just do as Bruno has mentioned.
