Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The concept of contravariance, covariance and invariance are commonly used in the domain of Tensor Calculus. However I have heard that such concepts are more abstractly defined (perhaps) in cathegory theory.

Could someone explain shortly the connection between the abstract definitions of contravariance/covariance and the definitions used in tensor calculus?
