Let's say I have a non-linear transformation for (ct,x,y,z) in one coordinate system to (cT,X,Y,Z) of another coordinate system.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Despite being nonlinear, I assume I can transform all four-vectors using the same non-linear transformation (correct?), but how in the world do I transform the component representation of tensors? Such as [tex]F_{\mu\nu}[/tex] (the electromagnetic field tensor) for example?
