It is given a tensor:

$T=\begin{pmatrix}

1\\ 1

\end{pmatrix}\circ \begin{pmatrix}

1\\ 1

\end{pmatrix}\circ\begin{pmatrix}

1\\ 1

\end{pmatrix}+\begin{pmatrix}

-1\\ 1

\end{pmatrix}\circ\begin{pmatrix}

1\\ -1

\end{pmatrix}\circ\begin{pmatrix}

-1\\ 1

\end{pmatrix}$

$T=\begin{pmatrix}

2 &0 \\

0& 2

\end{pmatrix} and \begin{pmatrix}

0 &2 \\

2& 0

\end{pmatrix}$

it is given in example that I can represent the tensor T as a sum of the outer product of vector triples and as 2 matrices. I have computed the outer product of the vector triples, but I can't get the same result.

Can someone provide me detailed calculation?

$A=\begin{pmatrix}

1 &-1 \\

1& 1

\end{pmatrix}$

$B=\begin{pmatrix}

1 &1 \\

1& -1

\end{pmatrix}$

$C=\begin{pmatrix}

1 &-1 \\

1& 1

\end{pmatrix}$

**How to compute A, B, C?**

Later on the p 35 (53), example 2. or on p 36(54) 2.2.1 the vectors a,b,c are given without an explanation of how he/she competed them. In Â§2.2.1 it is given that "we set...." and it is all. No explanation of how they find them.

I have found examples in [Analysis of 2 Ã— 2 Ã— 2 Tensors][1], p 30 (48 in pdf file) example 1,6. In this example is given a calculation of a rank of T and these decompositions without explanation.

Can someone help me to understand the example?

**1) Why is it possible to write the tensor T as:**$T=\begin{pmatrix}

2 &0 \\

0& 2

\end{pmatrix} and \begin{pmatrix}

0 &2 \\

2& 0

\end{pmatrix}$

it is given in example that I can represent the tensor T as a sum of the outer product of vector triples and as 2 matrices. I have computed the outer product of the vector triples, but I can't get the same result.

**2) T=[[ABC]]**$A=\begin{pmatrix}

1 &-1 \\

1& 1

\end{pmatrix}$

$B=\begin{pmatrix}

1 &1 \\

1& -1

\end{pmatrix}$

$C=\begin{pmatrix}

1 &-1 \\

1& 1

\end{pmatrix}$
