Hello! I am not really sure I understand the idea of tensors and the difference between them and normal matrices, for example (for rank 2 tensors). Can someone explain this to me, or give me a good resource for this? I don't want a complete introduction to GR math, I just want to understand the idea of tensors for now. Thank you!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
