Hello All,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am quiet new to this subject.I am unable to get over tensors and ranks.

(1) Does tensor order has to do something with the rank of the matrix?

(2) What doe tensor order 2,3.....means?

If I have a 2 by 2 matrix, does that means it is a 2nd.order tensor and 3 by 3 matrix means a third order tensor and so on.......

Does tensor have relations with matrix?

Please excuse me if my question is too mundane?

Thanks,

-- Shounak
