I was looking at this table here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tensor#Examples(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

And i didn't understand why a (1,1) tensor is a linear transformation, I was wondering if someone could explain why this is.

A (1,1) tensor takes a vector and a one-form to a scalar.

But a linear transformation takes a vector to a vector.

Thanks.
