# hypermatrices

a Scilab object, N dimensional matrix in Scilab

### Description

Hypermatrix type allows to manipulate multidimensional arrays.

They can be defined by extension of 2D matrices as follows
`a=[1 2;3 4];a(:,:,2)=rand(2,2)`

or directly using `hypermat`

function.

Entries can be real or complex numbers, polynomials, rationals, strings, booleans.

Hypermatrices are `mlists`

:
`mlist(['hm','dims','entries'],sz,v)`

where `sz`

is the row
vector of dimensions and `v`

the column vector of entries (first
dimension are stored first).

The number of dimension of hypermatrices with right-most sizes equal to
1 are automatically reduced. An hypermatrix with only two dimensions is
automatically changed to a regular matrix (type 1). |
