I know very little about General Relativity, I don't know what a tensor is
and don't know any of the mathematics involved (even though I know
pretty much all of the equations in Special Relativity.)
Could someone please explain tensors to me, or point me to a link that does?
And where can I go to find a mathematical explanation of GR?
