What is "tensorA"?

"tensorA", is a new R-package for computations with tensors and datasets of vectors or matrices, written by K. Gerald van den Boogaart, Greifswald. It is now available as a first complete version and can be downloaded from this page.

Simply speaking a tensor is multidimensional array. And seen from this point of view the package just provides some additional operations of arrays. All those who want to do computations on arrays that are most naturally expressed in operations of tensors, vectors and matrices of vectors or matrices will find this package useful for several reasons:

If you have ever used the dim(x)<-value construct to reshape your matrix for the next %*% you will be a friend of tensorA.
