Homogeneous Function

A function which satisfies


for a fixed $n$. Means, the Weierstraß Elliptic Function, and Triangle Center Functions are homogeneous functions. A transformation of the variables of a Tensor changes the Tensor into another whose components are linear homogeneous functions of the components of the original Tensor.
