I have a table that includes the numeric and exact solution of a complex PDE.

I want to calculate error between exact and numeric solution.

**Question 1: **Which type of error is mostly used for complex solutions? Absolute error or relative error ,ecludian norm error etc.

**Question 2: **How to calculate absolute error in complex solutions?

|abs(Exact_Solution)-abs(Numeric_Solution)|

or

|abs(Exact_Solution-Numeric_Solution)|
