"""Converts the Tucker tensor into a full tensor
Parameters
----------
core : ndarray
core tensor
factors : ndarray list
list of matrices of shape ``(s_i, core.shape[i])``
skip_factor : None or int, optional, default is None
if not None, index of a matrix to skip
Note that in any case, `modes`, if provided, should have a lengh of ``tensor.ndim``
transpose_factors : bool, optional, default is False
if True, the matrices or vectors in in the list are transposed
Returns
-------
2D-array
full tensor of shape ``(factors[0].shape[0], ..., factors[-1].shape[0])``

Parameters
----------
core : ndarray

factors : ndarray list
list of factor matrices
skip_factor : None or int, optional, default is None

Returns
-------

Notes
-----
Mathematically equivalent but much slower,
you can obtain the same result using:
>>> def tucker_to_vec(core, factors):
... return kronecker(factors).dot(tensor_to_vec(core))
