    Quick intro to tensor analysis-- probably the simplest I've found.
    It's very easy to comprehend, it just depends on your background. (Especially with linear algebra, obviously)

    search this subforum (there is a search function), the question 'what is a tensor?' comes up regularly here, you will find some nice explanations
