   * Compute the product of a matrix or a list with values.
   * In case of a (multi dimensional) array or matrix, the sum of all
   * elements will be calculated.
   *
   * Syntax:
   *
   *     math.prod(a, b, c, ...)
   *     math.prod(A)
   *
   * Examples:
   *
   *     math.multiply(2, 3);           // returns 6
   *     math.prod(2, 3);               // returns 6
   *     math.prod(2, 3, 4);            // returns 24
   *     math.prod([2, 3, 4]);          // returns 24
   *     math.prod([[2, 5], [4, 3]]);   // returns 120
   *
   * See also:
   *
   *    mean, median, min, max, sum, std, var
   *
   * @param {... *} args  A single matrix or or multiple scalar values
   * @return {*} The product of all values
