Hi there(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can somebody please explain shortly the difference between a tangent vector and a vector field? I'm still new to differential geometry. I read couple of sources

that had mixed claims on which of them actually act on a given function f. so i'm kind of confused.

Much appreciated.
