Abstract: In 1996 Maillet and Sanchez de Santos introduced the factorising F- matrix (really a tensor). This tensor factorises products of R-tensors indexed by permutations (the ubiquitous transfer matrix and indeed entire lattices of R-tensors are in this class. In this talk I define and describe some properties of the factorising F-tensors the use of diagrammatic tensor notation in general.
