Tensor

Tensors are a generalization of vectors and matrices.

 


Explanation

Tensors are used in the equations that describe the general theory of relativity. This guarantees that the dynamics that follows from the equation, does not depend on the coordinate system in which one works.

 


Additional information

The Italian mathematician Gregorio Ricci-Curbastro is the inventor of tensor calculus.
