Tensor decomposition express a tensor as a linear combination of elementary tensors. They have applications in chemometrics, computer science, machine learning, psychometrics, and signal processing. Their uniqueness properties render them suitable for data analysis tasks in which the elementary tensors are the quantities of interest. However, in applications, the idealized mathematical model is corrupted by measurement errors. For a robust interpretation of the data, it is therefore imperative to quantify how sensitive these elementary tensors are to perturbations of the whole tensor. I will give an overview of recent results on the condition number of tensor decompositions, established with my collaborators C. Beltran, P. Breiding, and N. Dewaele.
