Tensors and GR

  1. I know very little about General Relativity, I don't know what a tensor is
    and don't know any of the mathematics involved (even though I know
    pretty much all of the equations in Special Relativity.)
    Could someone please explain tensors to me, or point me to a link that does?
    And where can I go to find a mathematical explanation of GR?

    You may find this heavy going, but you can get some ideas as to the answer to both of your questions at


    Do you have calculus yet?
