Is there a block that finds the norm of a vector in simulink? I haven't found the equivalent to norm(v) from MATLAB.
Thanks!

You can use the dot product block (with the same vector wired to both inputs) followed by a square root. Both are under the Math Operations library. I think the previously suggested abs block computes the absolute values of each element of the input vector.

hi, it does exist, its called "abs" , open Simulink library and go to :"Math operations" block , its the first on the list, with notation u : ABS

Agreed. This is not the correct answer.

hi, if the first answer does not work, you can use other ways, like :
1) go to " User Defined Functions" in Simulink Block .
2) choose "f(u)" FCN, add it to your file , right click on it you will find the default value :
sin(u(1)*exp(2.3*(-u(2))))
change it to
"norm(u)"

Hi,
You may direct use matrix 1-norms from dsp tool box.
Thanks
