In mathematics, a tensor is a certain kind of geometrical entity and array[disambiguation needed] concept. It generalizes the concepts of scalar, vector (geometric) and linear operator, in a way that is independent of any chosen frame of reference. For example, doing rotations over axis does not affect at all the properties of tensors, if a transformation law is followed. Tensors are of importance in pure and applied mathematics, physics and engineering.
