This function is a "direction-changing function", whose result grid is determined by the value of a specific direction argument. The variables in arguments 1 and 2 must have axes of the same length in the dot-product directions.
Examples: Sketching the function call,
! For 1-D variables in x, compute the inner product along the common x axis ! The result is a scalar yes? let product = DOT(Ax, Bx, 1) ! For 2-D variables that share z and t axes, compute the inner product along the common z axis ! The result has a grid in xt yes? let product = DOT(Axzt, Bzt, 3)
