This library defines data types and classes for fixed dimension
vectors and tensors. The main objects are:

[@'Data.Ordinal.Ordinal'@] A totally ordered set with fixed size. The
@'Data.Ordinal.Ordinal'@ type @'Data.Ordinal.One'@ contains 1 element,
@'Data.Ordinal.Succ' 'Data.Ordinal.One'@ contains 2 elements,
@'Data.Ordinal.Succ' 'Data.Ordinal.Succ' 'Data.Ordinal.One'@ contains
3 elements, and so on (see "Data.Ordinal" for more details). The type
@'Data.Ordinal.Two'@ is an alias for @'Data.Ordinal.Succ'
'Data.Ordinal.One'@, @'Data.Ordinal.Three'@ is an alias for
@'Data.Ordinal.Succ' 'Data.Ordinal.Succ' 'Data.Ordinal.One'@, and so

[@'Data.TypeList.MultiIndex.MultiIndex'@] The index set. It can be
linear, rectangular, parallelepipedal, etc. The dimensions of the
sides are expressed using @'Data.Ordinal.Ordinal'@ types and the type
constructor @'Data.TypeList.MultiIndex.:|:'@,
e.g. @('Data.Ordinal.Two' 'Data.TypeList.MultiIndex.:|:'
('Data.Ordinal.Three' 'Data.TypeList.MultiIndex.:|:'
'Data.TypeList.MultiIndex.Nil'))@ is a rectangular index set with 2
rows and 3 columns. The index set also contains elements, for example
@('Data.Ordinal.Two' 'Data.TypeList.MultiIndex.:|:'
('Data.Ordinal.Three' 'Data.TypeList.MultiIndex.:|:'
'Data.TypeList.MultiIndex.Nil'))@ contains all the pairs @(i
'Data.TypeList.MultiIndex.:|:' (j 'Data.TypeList.MultiIndex.:|:'
Nil))@ where i is in @'Data.Ordinal.Two'@ and j is in
@'Data.Ordinal.Three'@. See "Data.TypeList.MultiIndex" for more

[@'Data.Tensor.Tensor'@] It is an assignment of elements to each
element of its @'Data.TypeList.MultiIndex.MultiIndex'@.

Objects like vectors and matrices are special cases of tensors.  Most
of the functions to manipulate tensors are grouped into type classes.
This allow the possibility of having different internal
representations (backends) of a tensor, and act on these with the same
functions. At the moment we only provide one backend based on
<http://hackage.haskell.org/package/vector>, which is accessible by
importing the module "Data.Tensor.Vector". More backends will be
provided in future releases.

Here is a usage example:

>>> :m Data.Ordinal Data.TypeList.MultiIndex Data.Tensor.Vector
>>> fromList [2,3,5,1,3,6,0,5,4,2,1,3] :: Tensor (Four :|: (Three :|: Nil)) Int

The above defines a tensor with 4 rows and 3 columns (a matrix) and
@'Int'@ coefficients. The entries of this matrix are taken from a list
using @'Data.Tensor.fromList'@ which is a method of the class
@'Data.Tensor.FromList'@. Notice the output: the @'Show'@ instance is
defined in such a way to give a readable representation as list of
lists. The is equivalent but slightly more readable code:

>>> fromList [2,3,5,1,3,6,0,5,4,2,1,3] :: Matrix Four Three Int


>>> fromList [7,3,-6] :: Tensor (Three :|: Nil) Int


>>> fromList [7,3,-6] :: Vector Three Int

are the same. In order to access an entry of a @'Data.Tensor.Tensor'@
we use the @'Data.Tensor.!'@ operator, which takes the same
@'Data.TypeList.MultiIndex.MultiIndex'@ of the @'Data.Tensor.Tensor'@
as its second argument:

>>> let a = fromList [2,3,5,1,3,6,0,5,4,2,1,3] :: Matrix Four Three Int
>>> let b = fromList [7,3,-6] :: Vector Three Int
>>> a ! (toMultiIndex [1,3] :: (Four :|: (Three :|: Nil)))
>>> b ! (toMultiIndex [2] :: (Three :|: Nil))

it returns the element at the coordinate (1,3) of the matrix @a@, and
the element at the coordinate 2 of the vector b. In fact, thanks to
type inference, we could simply write

>>> a ! toMultiIndex [1,3]
>>> b ! toMultiIndex [2]

And now a couple of examples of algebraic operations (requires adding
@"Data.Tensor.LinearAlgebra"@ to the import list):

>>> :m Data.Ordinal Data.TypeList.MultiIndex Data.Tensor.Vector Data.Tensor.LinearAlgebra
>>> let a = fromList [2,3,5,1,3,6,0,5,4,2,1,3] :: Matrix Four Three Int
>>> let b = fromList [7,3,-6] :: Vector Three Int
>>> a .*. b

is the product of matrix @a@ and vector @b@, while

>>> let c = fromList [3,4,0,-1,4,5,6,2,1] :: Matrix Three Three Int
>>> c
>>> charPoly c

gives the coefficients of the characteristic polynomial of the matrix
