I've PMd some of you with this question, but I got some conflicting replies or no replies at all lol, so I'm posting it here. I also did a Google search and found this which I'm almost sure answers my question, but I just want to confirm with you guys:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

''In general, scalar fields are referred to as tensor fields of rank or order zero whereas vector fields are called tensor fields of rank or order one.''

Since the Higgs is a scalar field, I guess it's a tensor field of rank 0, too. Is that correct?
