Image Norms

The functions described in this section compute the following norms of the image pixel values:
  • Infinity norm (the largest absolute pixel value)
  • L1 norm (the sum of absolute pixel values)
  • L2 norm (the square root of the sum of squared pixel values).
Functions of this group also help you compute the norm of differences in pixel values of two input images as well as the relative error for two input images.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
