Let $\vert\vert{\hbox{\sf A}}\vert\vert$ be the Matrix Norm associated with the Matrix ${\hbox{\sf A}}$ and $\vert\vert{\bf x}\vert\vert$ be the Vector Norm associated with a Vector ${\bf x}$. Let the product ${\hbox{\sf A}}{\bf x}$ be defined, then $\vert\vert{\hbox{\sf A}}\vert\vert$ and $\vert\vert{\bf x}\vert\vert$ are said to be compatible if

\vert\vert{\hbox{\sf A}}{\bf x}\vert\vert\leq \vert\vert{\hbox{\sf A}}\vert\vert\,\vert\vert{\bf x}\vert\vert.
