I just want to verify if the following is correct
[tex]\left\right\|x\|[/tex]2.[tex]\left\right\|A\|[/tex]2= [tex]\left\right\|Ax\|[/tex]2

Thanks

How are you defining the norm of the operator? As [itex]Tr(A^TA)[/itex]? In that case, no. If you let x=(1,0,...,0), the right-hand side only contains components from the first column of A but the left-hand side contains other components.

However, the norm of A is often defined as

[tex]\|A\|=\sup_{\|x\|=1}\|Ax\|[/tex]

so maybe if you change the = to ≤...
