Detailed Description

Pure virtual base class for the vector space used by NOX::Epetra::Vectors.

This class allows users to override the inner product and norm used by the NOX::Epetra::Vector class. The most frequent use of this class is for introducing a weighted norm throughout NOX.


Member Function Documentation

virtual double NOX::Epetra::VectorSpace::norm ( const Epetra_Vector a,
NOX::Abstract::Vector::NormType  = NOX::Abstract::Vector::TwoNorm 
) const [pure virtual]

Computes the norm.

For an L2 norm, the computation is: sqrt( <a,a> ).

Implemented in NOX::Epetra::VectorSpaceL2, and NOX::Epetra::VectorSpaceScaledL2.
