When learning a tensor programming language like PyTorch or Numpy it is tempting to rely on the standard library (or more honestly StackOverflow) to find a magic function for everything. But in practice, the tensor language is extremely expressive, and you can do most things from first principles and clever use of broadcasting.
This is a collection of 16 tensor puzzles. Like chess puzzles these are not meant to simulate the complexity of a real program, but to practice in a simplified environment. Each puzzle asks you to reimplement one function in the NumPy standard library without magic.
