tucker(tensor, rank=None, ranks=None, n_iter_max=100, init='svd', svd='numpy_svd', tol=0.0001, random_state=None, mask=None, verbose=False)

Tucker decomposition via Higher Order Orthogonal Iteration (HOI)

Decomposes tensor into a Tucker decomposition: tensor = [| core; factors[0], ...factors[-1] |] [1]
ranksNone or int list

size of the core tensor, (len(ranks) == tensor.ndim)

rankNone or int

number of components


maximum number of iteration

init{‘svd’, ‘random’}, optional
svdstr, default is ‘numpy_svd’

function to use to compute the SVD, acceptable values in tensorly.SVD_FUNS

tolfloat, optional

tolerance: the algorithm stops when the variation in the reconstruction error is less than the tolerance

random_state{None, int, np.random.RandomState}
verboseint, optional

level of verbosity

corendarray of size ranks

core tensor of the Tucker decomposition

factorsndarray list

list of factors of the Tucker decomposition. Its i-th element is of shape (tensor.shape[i], ranks[i])
