examples of tensors, but there is much more to tensor theory than vectors. The second chapter discusses tensor ﬁelds and curvilinear coordinates. It is this chapter that provides the foundations for tensor applications in physics. The third chapter extends tensor theory to spaces other than vector spaces, namely manifolds. Having deﬁned vectors and one-forms we can now deﬁne tensors. A tensor of rank (m,n), also called a (m,n) tensor, is deﬁned to be a scalar function of mone-forms and nvectors that is linear in all of its arguments. It follows at once that scalars are tensors of rank (0,0), vectors are tensors of rank (1,0) and one-forms are tensors of File Size: KB.

This textbook provides a rigorous approach to tensor manifolds in several aspects relevant for Engineers and Physicists working in industry or academia. With a thorough, comprehensive, and unified presentation, this book offers insights into several topics of tensor analysis, which covers all aspects of N dimensional spaces.

It is mathematical—sorry—but it gives the bare-bones definitions that. This book offers a valuable, yet not entirely self-contained, introduction to classical tensor analysis. As a beginner, I found the text to be too terse and was forced to consult other sources, such as Levi-Civita's "Absolute Differential Calculus" and Eisenhart's "Riemannian Geometry".
