A tensor which has the property that its coefficients are invariant under permutation of its indices is called a symmetric tensor, and as we have just seen symmetric tensors provide a particularly efficient method for representing homogeneous polynomials. while at the same time avoiding the aforemen~lOned disadvantages 2 and 3. To see the spanning aspect, one can use the universal properties of symmetric and exterior powers much as in our analogous argument for why tensors of basis vectors space a tensor product. Such transformation has an invariant tensor which is called the conharmonic curvature tensor. symmetric tensor so that S = S.
