expands out tensor-related products in the symbolic tensor expression texpr.

Details and OptionsDetails and Options

  • TensorExpand expands sums and products by scalars in tensorial arguments.
  • Expressions involving Dot and Cross are expanded by converting products of pairs of Cross subexpressions into linear combinations of Dot products.
  • Symbolic arguments of Cross are assumed to represent vectors of adequate dimensionality.
  • Symbolic arguments of MatrixPower and Inverse are assumed to represent invertible square matrices.
