# What is the Euclidean distance?

In mathematics, the Euclidean distance or Euclidean metric is the "ordinary" straight-line distance between two points in Euclidean space. With this distance, Euclidean space becomes a metric space. The associated norm is called the Euclidean norm. Older literature refers to the metric as Pythagorean metric.

In respect to this, what is the Euclidean norm of a matrix?

Frobenius Norm. The Frobenius norm, sometimes also called the Euclidean norm (a term unfortunately also used for the vector -norm), is matrix norm of an matrix defined as the square root of the sum of the absolute squares of its elements, (Golub and van Loan 1996, p. 55).

Why do we use Euclidean distance?

The Euclidean Distance tool is used frequently as a stand-alone tool for applications, such as finding the nearest hospital for an emergency helicopter flight. Alternatively, this tool can be used when creating a suitability map, when data representing the distance from a certain object is needed.

What is the meaning of Euclidean space?

Euclidean space, In geometry, a two- or three-dimensional space in which the axioms and postulates of Euclidean geometry apply; also, a space in any finite number of dimensions, in which points are designated by coordinates (one for each dimension) and the distance between two points is given by a distance formula.
