I do not believe that physics belongs in a math discussion, so I am going to ignore everything else but this comment. In the context of a vector space over a field F, the scalar field consists solely of the elements of F. So if we regard F as a vector space over itself, then the scalar field is just a 1-dimensional vector space.A Rank 0 tensor is also called a Scalar which I believe implies a Scalar is a 1-D Vector Space. Is a Scalar also a 1-D Vector Space (which the Reals is)?
