Hi,
I was posed a tensor problem and was wondering if I could use mathematica to solve it. Say we have two tensors they are:

Tau = 0 2 0
2 0 2
0 2 1

v = 1
1
0

Can I use mathematica to Solve Tau.dot.v ?
I was also asked to find Tau.X.v (Cross product). Can you even take the cross product of a rank 2 tensor and a rank 1 tensor? I looked through some of the Mathematica documentation and couldn't find a cross product operation for tensors, but I might be missing something.

Thanks!
