Names for normalizations

  1. Aug 20, 2009 #1
    I want to write that I'm normalizing a vector, but I need to specify what TYPE of normalization I'm doing.

    I want to say that I'm dividing each element by the largest element in the vector, rather than something else like dividing all elements by the Euclidean length of the vector or something like that.

    Is there a word for these two types of normalization, so that I don't need to explain what I'm doing in words ?? Like for ex. "max-normalization" and "Euclidean Normalization" ??

    If I said that I'm normalizing the elements to lie between 0 and 1, would it be obvious that I'm dividing each element by the largest element in the vector ??

    THank you.
