[intrinsic definition] In mathematics, the modern component-free approach to the theory of a tensor views a tensor as an abstract object, expressing some definite type of multi-linear concept. Their well-known properties can be derived from their definitions, as linear maps or more generally...

Tensors are geometric objects that describe linear relations between vectors, scalars, and other tensors. Elementary examples of such relations include the dot product, the cross product, and linear maps. Vectors and scalars themselves are also tensors. A tensor can be represented as a multi-dimens...

A generalization of a vector; tensors originated in the 19th century as an abstract mathematical concept. A tensor is specified in terms of a set of coordinates, so that its form changes if a different set of mathematical coordinates is chosen. However, tensors have the property that any equation in...

tensor, in mathematics, quantity that depends linearly on several vector variables and that varies covariantly with respect to some variables and contravariantly with respect to others when the coordinate axes are rotated (see Cartesian coordinates). Tensors appear throughout mathematics, though the...
