# Is there a particular name for a'long-small-small' tensor/array?

I'm thinking of a 3D array, with dimensions small,small,large.

I've taken to saying 'sausage' as shorthand (and I'm sure there are worse NSFW descriptions) but is there a 'legitimate' description for this kind of arrangement?

I don't believe anybody's taken the time to name tensors with special dimensions... –  Ｊ. Ｍ. Apr 18 '11 at 22:36
Sausage it is then :D –  Andrew Bolster Apr 18 '11 at 22:37
It reminds me of a prolate spheroid, but I'm really reaching here. (Plus, it would only be technically correct if both short dimensions were equal.) –  Rahul Apr 18 '11 at 22:44

It seems that there is no established term for these kinds of arrays.
