Use the Einstein summation convention to avoid the creation of temporary arrays when computing the likelihood-weighted means and standard deviations. This speeds up the evaluation of the physical properties and ultimately pdf_analysis can run more than 25% faster when evaluating a large number of physical properties with more than a million models.

### Optimised
- The estimation of the physical properties and the related uncertainties has been made up to 50% faster. The final gain in the analysis speed accounting for all the steps depends on the number of properties to be evaluated and the number of models but can be over 25% when estimating many properties over a large parameter space.
