Theory and Computation of Tensors: Multi-Dimensional Arrays investigates theories and computations of tensors to broaden perspectives on matrices. Data in the Big Data Era is not only growing larger but also becoming much more complicated. Tensors (multi-dimensional arrays) arise naturally from many engineering or scientific disciplines because they can represent multi-relational data or nonlinear relationships.
