# Named Tensor Notation

@article{Chiang2021NamedTN, title={Named Tensor Notation}, author={David Chiang and Alexander M. Rush and Boaz Barak}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2021}, volume={abs/2102.13196} }

We propose a notation for tensors with named axes, which relieves the author, reader, and future implementers from the burden of keeping track of the order of axes and the purpose of each. It also makes it easy to extend operations on low-order tensors to higher order ones (e.g., to extend an operation on images to minibatches of images, or extend the attention mechanism to multiple attention heads). After a brief overview of our notation, we illustrate it through several examples from modern…

Proof Net Structure for Neural Lambek Categorial Parsing

- Computer ScienceIWPT

Attention is All you Need

- Computer ScienceNIPS
- 2017

A new simple network architecture, the Transformer, based solely on attention mechanisms, dispensing with recurrence and convolutions entirely is proposed, which generalizes well to other tasks by applying it successfully to English constituency parsing both with large and limited training data.

Typesafe Abstractions for Tensor Operations

- Computer ScienceArXiv
