This is a topic under linear-algebra.

In mathematics and physics, a tensor field assigns a tensor to each point of a mathematical space. Tensor fields are used in differential geometry, algebraic geometry, general relativity, in the analysis of stress and strain in materials, and in numerous applications in the physical sciences. As a tensor is a generalization of a scalar and a vector, a tensor field is a generalization of a scalar field or vector field that assigns, respectively, a scalar or vector to each point of space.
