In PyTorch, a tensor is a fundamental data structure that is used to represent multi-dimensional arrays. It is similar to NumPy arrays but has the added advantage of being able to run on GPUs, which makes it especially well-suited for deep learning and other machine learning tasks.

Here are some key points about tensors in PyTorch:

**Multi-Dimensional Arrays**: Tensors can be thought of as multi-dimensional arrays. They can have different numbers of dimensions, from 0 (a scalar) to more than 2 (for example, a 3D tensor).**Data Types**: Tensors can hold elements of various data types, such as floats, integers, and more. PyTorch supports a wide range of data types, including`float32`

,`float64`

,`int8`

,`int16`

,`int32`

,`int64`

, and more.**Operations**: PyTorch provides a wide range of operations that can be performed on tensors, similar to NumPy. These operations include arithmetic operations, matrix multiplications, element-wise operations, and more.**GPU Acceleration**: PyTorch makes it easy to perform operations on tensors using GPUs, which can significantly speed up computations for deep learning tasks. You can easily move tensors to and from the GPU for acceleration.

**2.1: Introduction to Tensors**

In this subsection, we’ll introduce what tensors are and their properties.

` ````
```import torch
# Scalars (0-dimensional tensors)
scalar = torch.tensor(5)
print("Scalar:", scalar)
# Vectors (1-dimensional tensors)
vector = torch.tensor([1, 2, 3])
print("Vector:", vector)
# Matrices (2-dimensional tensors)
matrix = torch.tensor([[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]])
print("Matrix:")
print(matrix)
# Tensors (n-dimensional tensors)
tensor = torch.tensor([[[1, 2], [3, 4]], [[5, 6], [7, 8]]])
print("3D Tensor:")
print(tensor)

**2.2: Creating and Manipulating Tensors**

In this subsection, we’ll see how to create and manipulate tensors.

` ````
```# Create a tensor of zeros
zeros_tensor = torch.zeros(2, 3)
print("Zeros Tensor:")
print(zeros_tensor)
# Create a tensor of ones
ones_tensor = torch.ones(2, 3)
print("Ones Tensor:")
print(ones_tensor)
# Create a random tensor
random_tensor = torch.rand(2, 3)
print("Random Tensor:")
print(random_tensor)
# Tensor shape and size
print("Shape of the tensor:", random_tensor.shape)
print("Number of elements in the tensor:", random_tensor.numel())
# Reshaping a tensor
reshaped_tensor = random_tensor.view(3, 2)
print("Reshaped Tensor:")
print(reshaped_tensor)
# Slicing a tensor
sliced_tensor = matrix[0, 1:3]
print("Sliced Tensor:")
print(sliced_tensor)

**2.3: Tensor Operations**

In this subsection, we’ll explore common tensor operations.

` ````
```# Addition
tensor1 = torch.tensor([[1, 2], [3, 4]])
tensor2 = torch.tensor([[5, 6], [7, 8]])
addition_result = tensor1 + tensor2
print("Addition Result:")
print(addition_result)
# Element-wise multiplication
elementwise_product = tensor1 * tensor2
print("Element-wise Multiplication:")
print(elementwise_product)
# Matrix multiplication
matrix1 = torch.tensor([[1, 2], [3, 4]])
matrix2 = torch.tensor([[5, 6], [7, 8]])
matrix_product = torch.mm(matrix1, matrix2)
print("Matrix Multiplication Result:")
print(matrix_product)
# Transposing a matrix
transposed_matrix = torch.t(matrix1)
print("Transposed Matrix:")
print(transposed_matrix)

**2.4: Broadcasting**

Broadcasting allows operations between tensors of different shapes. The smaller tensor is broadcast to match the shape of the larger tensor, making element-wise operations possible.

` ````
```# Broadcasting example
tensor1 = torch.tensor([[1, 2], [3, 4]])
scalar = 2
broadcasted_result = tensor1 + scalar
print("Broadcasted Result:")
print(broadcasted_result)

**2.5: GPU Acceleration**

PyTorch can leverage GPUs for faster tensor operations. Here’s how you can move tensors to the GPU:

` ````
```# Check if GPU is available
if torch.cuda.is_available():
device = torch.device("cuda") # Use the GPU
tensor_on_gpu = tensor1.to(device)
print("Tensor on GPU:")
print(tensor_on_gpu)
else:
print("GPU not available. Using CPU.")
