## Abstract

The H\"older $p$-norm of an $m \times n$ matrix has no explicit representation unless $p=1$,~$2$ or $\infty$. It is shown here that the $p$-norm can be estimated reliably in $O(mn)$ operations. A generalization of the power method is used, with a starting vector determined by a technique with a condition estimation flavour. The algorithm nearly always computes a $p$-norm estimate correct to the specified accuracy, and the estimate is always within a factor $n^{1-1/p}$ of $\|A\|_p$. As a by-product, a new way is obtained to estimate the 2-norm of a rectangular matrix; this method is more general and produces better estimates in practice than a similar technique of Cline, Conn and Van Loan.
