(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Explain how it is possible to perform a contraction of the tensor

##T^{\beta \gamma}_{\delta \epsilon}## in order to produce a scalar T

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

$$T^{\beta \gamma}_{\delta \epsilon}T_{\beta \gamma}^{\delta \epsilon}=T$$

Not sure if that is correct? Also not used the forums in a while so not sure im using the LaTex correctly here.
