Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I don't understand what is the difference between. e.g. the (1,1)-tensor T_{a}^{b} and T^{b}_{a}, i.e. when the lower and upper indices are exactly the same but in another "vertical order", one slightly to the left and the other one slightly to the right.

Thanks for your help!
