For vectors, but I was talking about matrices and induced p-norms (sorry 
for not being clear).  Warren pointed out that the spectral norm (the 
induced 2-norm) is used in Octave as the default.  Does someone have 
matlab to test their implementation?  The fact that matlab has a 
separate command for the Frobenius norm indicates that they also may be 
using the spectral norm for the default matrix norm.
