Is T(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); _{ab}[itex]\partial[/itex]_{c}f = T_{ac}[itex]\partial[/itex]_{b}f, where T is a tensor?

Seems to me like you should be able to do this:

T_{ab}[itex]\partial[/itex]_{c}f

=T_{ab}[itex]\delta[/itex]^{b}_{c}[itex]\partial[/itex]_{b}f

=T_{ac}[itex]\partial[/itex]_{b}f

Maybe I'm using the Kronecker delta incorrectly. Could someone check this for me?
