Hello. I am confused about the notation for tensors and vectors. From what I saw, for a 4-vector the notation is with upper index. But for a second rank tensor (electromagnetic tensor for example) the notation is also upper index. I attached a screenshot of this. Initially I thought that for vectors there is upper index while for tensors there is lower index but now I am really confused (see second image). What is the actual notation? Thank you!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
