I’ve been working through Leonard Susskind’s The Theoretical Minimum course, and one thing I’ve found interesting is the ubiquity of tensors - they seem to pop up everywhere in physics. I’ve been trying to build some intution behind what makes them so widely applicable, and I wanted to share my notes on this in the hopes that others might also find this useful. I’d also welcome any insights or corrections.
