This book is an attempt to broaden this point of view at the stage where the student first encounters the subject. The authors have treated tensor analysis as a continuation of advanced calculus, striking just the right balance between the formal and abstract approaches to the subject. The material proceeds from the general to the special.4/5(2).

Very applied books, e.g., books on General Relativity will typically devote a good portion of the book to tensor analysis. Needless to say, they view Tensor Analysis as a tool and thus, don't painstakingly explain it.

I tried learning tensor analysis from the above two categories but, for the most part, failed, i.e., learned the rules of Cited by: tensor analysis. Many exercises are included in each volume.

Fundamentals of Tensor Analysis Rule of Thumb: For algebra on vectors and tensors, an index must show up twice and only twice. If an index shows up once on the left hand side (LHS) of “ = ” sign, it must show up once and only once on the right hand side (RHS) of “ = ” sign.

This index is free Size: 65KB. "This is a first-rate book and deserves to be widely read." — American Mathematical Monthly Despite its success as a mathematical tool in the general theory of relativity and its adaptability to a wide range of mathematical and physical problems, tensor analysis has always had a rather restricted level of use, with an emphasis on notation and the manipulation of indices.4/5.

the place where most texts on tensor analysis begin. A basic knowledge of vectors, matrices, and physics is assumed. A semi-intuitive approach to those notions underlying tensor analysis is given via scalars, vectors, dyads, triads, and similar higher-order vector products.

This book presents tensors and tensor analysis as primary mathematical tools for engineering and engineering science students and researchers. The discussion is based on the concepts of vectors and vector analysis in three-dimensional Euclidean space, and although it takes the subject matter to an advanced level, the book starts with elementary.

This book is an attempt to broaden this point of view at the stage where the student first encounters the subject. The authors have treated tensor analysis as a continuation of advanced calculus, striking just the right balance between the formal and abstract approaches to the subject.

The material proceeds from the general to the special. The last chapter introduces the elements of tensor notions introduced in the book, and also the obtained results, are illustrated with numerous examples discussed in the text.

Each section of the book presents problems (a total over problems are given). Tensor analysis, branch of mathematics concerned with relations or laws that remain valid regardless of the system of coordinates used to specify the quantities.

Such relations are called covariant. Tensors were invented as an extension of vectors to formalize the manipulation of geometric entities arising in the study of mathematical manifolds. A vector is an entity that has both magnitude.

Tensor Analysis and Nonlinear Tensor Functions embraces the basic fields of tensor calculus: tensor algebra, tensor analysis, tensor description of curves and surfaces, tensor integral calculus, the basis of tensor calculus in Riemannian spaces and affinely connected spaces, - which are used in mechanics and electrodynamics of continua, crystallophysics, quantum chemistry etc.

A metric tensor is a (symmetric) (0, 2)-tensor; it is thus possible to contract an upper index of a tensor with one of the lower indices of the metric tensor in the product. This produces a new tensor with the same index structure as the previous tensor, but with lower index generally shown in the same position of the contracted upper index.

Elementary vector and tensor analysis concepts are reviewed in a manner that proves useful for higher-order tensor analysis of anisotropic media. In addition to reviewing basic matrix and vector analysis, the concept of a tensor is cov-ered by reviewing and contrasting numerous. different.

Really good intro level book on Vector and Tensor Analysis (s) submitted 6 years ago by unlikely_ending I've found and read many papers from the web on tensor analysis, - whic is a must-know if you want to understand General Relativity at more that a superficial level, as I do.

In tensor analysis the metric tensor is denoted as g i,j and its inverse is denoted as g i,j. This latter notation suggest that the inverse has something to do with contravariance.

These notes are based on a course of lectures given by Professor Nelson at Princeton during the spring term of The subject of Brownian motion has long been of interest in mathematical probability.

In these lectures, Professor Nelson traces the history of earlier work in Brownian motion, both the mathematical theory, and the natural phenomenon with its physical interpretations. Revised and updated throughout, this book presents the fundamental concepts of vector and tensor analysis with their corresponding physical and geometric applications - emphasizing the development of computational skills and basic procedures, and exploring highly complex and technical topics in simplified settings.;This text: incorporates transformation of rectangular cartesian coordinate Brand: Eutiquio C.

Download for offline reading, highlight, bookmark or take notes while you read Tensor Analysis. I'm a fan of Bishop and Goldberg's "Tensor Analysis on Manifolds." It's fairly physically motivated while still keeping the math rigorous.

I'm sure there are better books out there, but this one is nice for its niche. On a related note, Wald's "General Relativity" is a great book that has a couple good chapters on tensor calculus in the beginning.
