Store ProductManifold instances in a tuple

Since the number of manifolds used to initialize ProductManifold and
their types are known at compile-time, it is possible to avoid storing
pointers to the base class as required by a homogeneous, currently
dynamically sized container. Instead, we can use std::tuple<> as a
heterogenous container with the number of elements fixed at compile-time
that allows us to store the concrete manifold realizations.

The advantage of this approach is that we can bypass the vtable when
iterating over each manifold within ProductManifold. The indirection is
invoked only once while accessing the ProductManifoldImpl members.
Additionally, potential dynamic memory allocations by a std::vector can
be completely avoided. This makes the ProductManifold implementation
more efficient both in memory and runtime.

Ceres Solver

Ceres Solver is an open source C++ library for modeling and solving large, complicated optimization problems. It is a feature rich, mature and performant library which has been used in production at Google since 2010. Ceres Solver can solve two kinds of problems.

  1. Non-linear Least Squares problems with bounds constraints.
  2. General unconstrained optimization problems.
