# hypermat

initialize an N dimensional matrices

### Calling Sequence

`M=hypermat(dims [,v])`

### Arguments

dims

vector of hypermatrix dimensions

v

vector of hypermatrix entries (default value `zeros(prod(dims),1)`)

### Description

Initialize an hypermatrix whose dimensions are given in the vector dims and entries are given in optional argument `v`

M data structure contains the vector of matrix dimensions `M('dims')` and the vector of entries `M('entries')` such as the leftmost subcripts vary first `[M(1,1,..);..;M(n1,1,..);...;M(1,n2,..);..;M(n1,n2,..);...]`

Warning: If you build your own `hypermat`, you must be careful. The M('dims') entry must be a row vector whereas the M('entries') must be a column vector.

### Examples

```M = hypermat([2 3 2 2],1:24)
disp(size(M('dims')))
disp(size(M('entries')))

M_own            = mlist(['hm','dims','entries']);
M_own('dims')    = [2 3 2 2];
M_own('entries') = [1:24]';
disp(size(M_own('dims')))
disp(size(M_own('entries')))```
