## Idea

The yoga of handling tensors, in particular contracting them with each other; and in the case of tensor products of sections of a tangent bundle and cotangent bundle also the operations of differentiation of tensors, hence the generalization of “calculus” (analysis) from vectors to tensors.

See at string diagram and tensor network for more.
