    2-norm of a matrix

    How do you prove that

    \left\|A^{*} A  \right\|_{2}=  \left\| A \right\|^{2}_{2} ?

    I can prove that \left\|A^{*} A  \right\|_{2} \leq  \left\| A \right\|^{2}_{2}

    but I am not sure how to proceed for the other inequality.

    Which norm are you using for these matrices? Is it

    <br />
\left\| A \right\|_{2} = \left( \sum\limits_{i,j} |A_{ij}|^{2} \right)^{\frac{1}{2}}<br />

    ?

    2-norm of a matrix

    I think

     \left\| A \right\| _{2} = Sup_{x \neq 0} \frac {\left\| Ax \right\| _{2}}{\left\|  x \right\| _{2}}

    and the one that you had might be the Frobenius norm.
