This function can compute several different vector norms (the 1-norm, the Euclidean or 2-norm, the inf-norm, and in general the p-norm for p > 0) and matrix norms (Frobenius, 1-norm, 2-norm and inf-norm).

`tensor` `Tensor` of types `float32`, `float64`, `complex64`, `complex128`
`ord` Order of the norm. Supported values are `'fro'`, `'euclidean'`, `1`, `2`, `np.inf` and any positive real number yielding the corresponding p-norm. Default is `'euclidean'` which is equivalent to Frobenius norm if `tensor` is a matrix and equivalent to 2-norm for vectors. Some restrictions apply: a) The Frobenius norm `'fro'` is not defined for vectors, b) If axis is a 2-tuple (matrix norm), only `'euclidean'`, '`fro'`, `1`, `2`, `np.inf` are supported. See the description of `axis` on how to compute norms for a batch of vectors or matrices stored in a tensor.
`axis` If `axis` is `None` (the default), the input is considered a vector and a single vector norm is computed over the entire set of values in the tensor, i.e. `norm(tensor, ord=ord)` is equivalent to `norm(reshape(tensor, [-1]), ord=ord)`. If `axis` is a Python integer, the input is considered a batch of vectors, and `axis` determines the axis in `tensor` over which to compute vector norms. If `axis` is a 2-tuple of Python integers it is considered a batch of matrices and `axis` determines the axes in `tensor` over which to compute a matrix norm. Negative i
