Abstract

By a tensor we mean a multidimensional array (matrix) or hypermatrix over a number field. This article aims to set an account of the studies on the permanent functions of tensors. We formulate the definitions of 1-permanent, 2-permanent, and k-permanent of a tensor in terms of hyperplanes, planes, and k-planes of the tensor; we discuss the polytopes of stochastic tensors; at the end, we present an extension of the generalized matrix function for tensors.
