Eigenvectors of square matrices are central to linear algebra.
Eigenvectors of tensors are a natural generation. The spectral theory
of tensors was pioneered by Lim and Qi a decade ago, and it has found
numerous applications. We present an introduction to this theory, with focus
on results on eigenconfigurations due to Abo, Cartwright, Robeva, Seigal and the author. We also discuss a count of singular vectors due to Friedland and Ottaviani.
