I am a bit confused with tensors here.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

now i know that [tex]\Lambda[/tex], the transformation matrix has a different meaning when I write

[tex]\Lambda^\mu\ _{\nu}[/tex] and when I write [tex]\Lambda_{\nu}\ ^\mu[/tex]

One is the mu-nu th element of [tex]\Lambda[/tex] and the other is the mu-nu th element of [tex]\Lambda^{-1}[/tex].

Is it the same for tensors. I mean is [tex]F^\mu\ _{\nu}[/tex] different from [tex]F_{\nu}\ ^\mu[/tex] ?

If there is a difference of writing inner and outer indices what is it?
