By the question in the title, I mean, do the so-called 4-vectors and tensors of SR transform as tangent vectors and tensors (in the sense of differential geometry) with respect to(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); anytransformation (local diffeomorphism) of the space-time coordinates or only with respect to Lorentz transformations? Thanks!
