(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A([itex]\vec{x}[/itex]) = (F + T * x )^{2}

F is a constant,

x is a 2×1 vector

T is a (constant) 1×2 matrix

B([itex]\vec{x}[/itex]) = || K.Z.x ||^{2}k:3[itex]\times[/itex]3 matrix and Z:3[itex]\times[/itex]2, x the same as above

B(x) is also R^{2}→R

C(x) = A(x) + B(x)

2. Relevant equations

1- I am confused how can (A + B) be represented as a (vector) norm like this:

C(x) = || (F , 0) + (T , K).Z.x ||^{2}

, i.e., what would be the dimensionality and meaning of the matrix (T , K) ? (discrepancy between the first 1 [itex]\times[/itex] 2 entry and second 3 [itex]\times[/itex] 3?)
