# pnorm

Tags:

Updated:

pnorm is used to create a conic model of p-norm. For standard norms 1,2 and inf the standard norm should be used.

## Syntax

y = pnorm(x,q/r);
y = pnorm(x,p,'power')


## Example

Plot a TV-screen!

x = sdpvar(2,1);
plot(pnorm(x,7/2) <= 1);


### Comment

The operator is implemented using a graph representation based on conic models, and can thus only be used in scenarios where YALMIP can propagate convexity in a conic form. By default it uses a second-order cone model (which can grow very large if q and r are large), but by appending a third argument this can be switched to a power cone representation which will be more compact.
