tensor

(tĕn′sər, -sôr′)
n.
1. Anatomy A muscle that stretches or tightens a body part.
2. Mathematics A set of quantities that obey certain transformation laws relating the bases in one generalized coordinate system to those of another and involving partial derivative sums. Vectors are simple tensors.
