 Z←
R is an arbitrary Real numeric array (BOOL, INT, FLT, APA, RAT, VFP — otherwise, DOMAIN ERROR) whose number of columns (≢R) is 1, 2, 4, or 8 — otherwise, LENGTH ERROR.
Z is the corresponding Real or Hypercomplex array of shape ¯1↓⍴R using the columns of R as the coefficients of the resulting Real or Hypercomplex array. If ≢R is 1, the result is the Real array (¯1↓⍴R)⍴R, if ≢R is 2, the result is a Complex array, if ≢R is 4, the result is a Quaternion array, and if ≢R is 8, the result is an Octonion array.

## Identities

R ←→ <>R   for all R (see Dilate for the definition of monadic Right Caret)
R ←→ ><R   for all R with (¯1↑⍴R)∊1 2 4 8
