Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

mat returns a matrix version of a provided tensor.

Usage

1
mat(A, k)

Arguments

A

An array to be unfolded.

k

The mode, or dimension, along which the unfolding is to be applied.

Details

Applies the matrix unfolding operator (also called 'matricization' or 'matrix flattening' operator) on a provided tensor. There are multiple ways one could do this. This function performs the matrix unfolding described in Kolda and Bader (2009).

Value

A matrix whose rows index the kth mode and whose columns index every other mode. The ordering of the columns is in lexicographical order of the indices of the array A.
