mark(X,mark,...)
## S3 method for class 'tensor'
mark(X,mark="'",i=1:level.tensor(X),...,by=NULL)
## S3 method for class 'numeric'
mark(X,mark="'",i=1:length(X),...,by=NULL)
## S3 method for class 'character'
mark(X,mark="'",i=1:length(X),...,by=NULL)

Arguments

X

A tensor or dimension to be marked

mark

a character giving the mark

i

the dimensions to be marked

...

generic arguments

by

Dimensions not to be marked. Wins in case of conflicts.

Details

The concept is very important in tensor algebra since it allows to keep dimensions connected without but still distinguishable. Eventually later a function for the Riemann summing rule will make use of marks to distinguish covariate and contravariate dimensions.

Value

A object similar to X but with marked dimensions.
