Is it correct to view tensors as multi-variable functions? For example, it seems the permutation tensor is a function of three variables and the metric tensor is a function of two variables. Of course, these "functions" turn into constants when i,j, and k (the indices) are known, but it seems like these constants can be viewed as the output of the function.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So, am I viewing tensors correctly? Thanks!
