Summary: Arrays of numbers may be written not only on a line (= ``a vector'') or in the plain (= ``a matrix'') but also on a circle (= ``a circular vector''), on a torus (= ``a toroidal matrix'') etc. In the latter case, the immanent index-rotation ambiguity converts the standard ``scalar'' product into a binary operation with several interesting properties.
