I am a beginner in theory of GR and am trying to understand it better.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a problem with understanding tensors. I got the algebriac idea, incliding covariance, contravariance and transformations etc of tensors. But not the geometric. Tensors are abstract but can I not have geometric interpretation of Tensors like I can have of Vectors.

If I can get image of tensors like I have of vectors, I think they would be far easier.
